Goa screening of 'Furiously Curious', a documentary on quizzing in India

If you've been a quizzer, or even liked to watch quizzes, you'd have seen it all. Upsets, downturns, the fast and the furious, the cool and the perturbed, the esoteric and the banal, the camaraderie and the intense rivalry.

Sarat Rao, a Mumbai-based documentary filmmaker, has now captured the sheer drama of it all in a documentary titled 'Furiously Curious'. As he puts it, "Knowledge obtained through the internal mechanism of an overpowering curiosity is well-remembered and well-enjoyed. The moment you test this knowledge, a certain competitive potential is set up. Soon enough sparks are bound to fly!"

SEQC features prominently in the 85-minute film. "Whoever has seen it so far has found the Goa sequences among the most interesting," says Rao. "The flavour of quizzing here is unique."

'Furiously Curious' will be screened for the first time in Goa at the International Centre Goa (ICG), in association with SEQC, on Sunday June 22 at 11am. The director will be on hand to introduce the film and interact with the audience. Attendance is free and open to all.

Can we get an online version? Also, what happened to your quiz updates (ppt)?

This is a special pre-release screening, there are no online versions open to the general public yet, since the film is expected to travel the film festival circuit this year.
Yes, we have been a bit lax in uploading the last few quizzes. Will remedy that asap.
