Imaging Bombay


Anchored on the politics of identity and livelihood, ‘Imaging Bombay’ attempts to look at this bustling city through the myriad processes of image making. Told through the lens of two image makers—second generation studio photographer Satish Gamre and avid instagrammer Meghna Girohtra—the film attempts to document the transformations in photography practices in the city. As image-makers ourselves, the film is stitched together with narratives and visuals of the city that resonates with each of our own experiences of clicking and getting clicked. From being a tool to document special moments to becoming a part and parcel of every passing moment- the film evokes the changing role and significance of the camera and its produced images. Standing at the historic moment of the analog-to-digital transition story today, this film is an addition to the visual archive of the city’s evolution.

Jaat Baaja Baraat


‘Jaat Baaja Baraat’ is definitely a film about marriage… but whether you look at two unfolding stories of love lost and love regained in Bombay, the twisted tale of a twenty-something woman seeking marital bliss, or listen to the disembodied voices of insecure filmmakers- the one thing you cannot escape is caste. Through the stories of Shekhar and Shanti, Rajesh and Bhavana, and the voices of the Arya Samaj and the All India Democratic Women’s Association, the film attempts an exploration of love and inter-caste marriage in the city of Bombay.
