Four Columbia Alumni on The 2014 Black List
The screenplays of four Columbia Film alumni have been selected for the prestigious 2014 Black List. The Black List began in 2005 as a survey of film executives about their favorite scripts which hadn't been turned into features. Since then, over 225 Black List screenplays have been made into feature films.

Sakharam Binder by Vijay Tendulkar
Directed by Nikhil Mehta ('13 SOA)
March 27 - 30
Vijay Tendulkar’s frightening masterpiece, Sakharam Binder, is the story of a bookbinder who, standing by his own subversive moral code, gives shelter to castoff and homeless women expecting servitude and sexual favors in exchange. This modern Indian classic, originally banned in the subcontinent and rarely seen in the United States, depicts a violent struggle between the sexes as desires and hopes succumb to the weight of a disillusioned people promised equality by Independence. Sakharam Binder is a testament to the invincible strength we muster in the face of unthinkable adversity, and the ferocity with which we fight for a better life.
