About this submission

"Samayada Harivu (Flow of Time)" delves into the lived experiences of Noor Mary and Prasad, inhabitants residing on opposite sides of the Historic Begur Lake, Bangalore, India . The documentary observes the complexities surrounding the concept of reclamation and its relevance today. For Noor Mary, the lake is a way to practice sustainable agriculture, whereas for Prasad it is a means of recreation and a chance to stay connected with nature. The contrast between the two distinct voices and the communities they represent emerge.

The film questions the idea of an Urban Commons.
