EK DOZEN PAANI
Join us for a special Flashback Friday evening, as we journey back with the films in the presence of, and in conversation with many of the filmmakers, accompanied by bonus archival material.
PaNi SaRe DhaGa Ma (Water Is In All The Clouds) as the sargam notes and title connote was an exploration of the many lives of water - social, political, material, and spectral - as lived and experienced by young dwellers of the Mumbai suburbs of east Jogeshwari in 2008
In a collaboration unique for its time, members of two local youth groups, Agaaz and Aakansha, met with the artist group CAMP, and anthropologist Nikhil Anand over several Sundays - shooting, exchanging footage with each other and collectively reading and writing over the video material. This filmic and pedagogic relay resulted in Ek Dozen Paani, (One Dozen Waters), a collection of 12 shorts that are still refreshing, carrying within them astute and analytical observations, intimate and poetic images, and multi-modal commentary on the dimensionalities of water, its capture and release, and its past, present, and futures.
See you there! Friday 26th March 6:00pm IST
With CAMP, Nikhil Anand (Associate Professor for Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania), Sitaram Shelar (Founder, Pani Haq Samiti) and the filmmaking teams from Agaaz and Akansha Seva Sangh -Wasim Ansari, Ismail Sharif, Sarika Shiwarulu Durga Gudilu, Govindi Gudilu, Shaali Shaikh and Surpiya Polmuri, Sarita Pulmuri, Archana Mirkar, Rashmi Mirkar, Vasant Ambore, Suraksha Amroskar)
