About this submission

I chose to inquire into the specific story to contextualise the lack of the dignity of labour as well as an "invisibility" of the profession presented in the film vis-a-vis class-relations in India. This was explored by dissecting time into 'linear' and 'another', with the privileged occupying the former. Critically, I felt responsible to experiment and understand the role of the camera and its gaze when filming such subjects. Consequently, the very act of filming became central to the film, where the subject (or spectator) became a very observer to the filming process. Therefore, the film was shot in low-resolution.
