Footage from the
Dharavi Documentation Project
Richa Hushing with Tapan Vyas and Rrivvu laha
2008. 180 minutes

Film-maker Richa Hushing, with camerapersons Tapan Vyas and Rrivu Laha, take us through Koliwada and Kumbharwada in Dharavi. The footage visits a kiln, a congested road, a fish market and a number of workshops. It looks at women, who make a formidable percentage of the total workforce in Dharavi, and the objects and spaces they interact with while they work (leather belts, fish, pots, terraces). The material was shot in 2008 around when the Dharavi Re-development Project was put on hold and is sourced from the Dharavi Documentation Project in pad.ma and is part of the digital image archive, Godaam (Majlis).


A Season of Footage and Films


CAMP presents
Saturday or Sunday evening screenings through winter, exploring footage both within and outside the usual capsule of "the film". An experience that could be similar to watching films, or at other times harder to digest, or slower to release, closer to the moment of shooting, less censorious, and less fearful of finitude. Another life, another world of viewing and listening experiences is always possible.

A Photogenetic Line: Experimenter 2019

A 100-foot long branching sequence of cutouts drawing from the photo archives of The Hindu, a 140-year old newspaper. Cutouts here are a way of reframing existing photographs as new organisms and to create a new boundary or border for the image.
