About The Event

Saacha the Loom
2000 | Marathi | 49 mins

Directed by Anjali Monteiro and KP Jayasankar. Weaving together poetry and paintings with memories of the city, the film explores the politics of representation, the relevance of art in the contemporary social milieu, the dilemmas of the left and the trade union movement and the changing face of a huge metropolis. Saacha, filmed in 2000, when the cotton textile industry was in the final stages of its decline, brings to bear an intimate and perceptive gaze on the lifeworld of the mills and their workers, which has since been totally erased from the history and geography of the city.
