About the Film: What happens to families in the absence of sons? What happens to land in the absence of farmers? What happens to communities in the absence of men? The Film weaves together testaments of individual ambitions and family biographies from Punjab, to chronicle the gradual transformation of the agrarian landscape and patriarchal traditions through ongoing transnational migration. Being a successful man now entails leaving one’s village, travelling abroad and sending money home. The Film shows how young men's decisions to emigrate implicate families and communities across North India. 

About the Film maker: For Indian-born filmmaker Harjant Gill, making films is about casting a spotlight on urgent and often overlooked social issues and making marginalised members of society feel less isolated and more understood. His films include As if it Matters, Everything, Some Reasons for Living, Lot’s Wife, Mission Movie and Milind Soman Made Me Gay. He was recently featured in a book Our Time is Now: Young People Changing the World. Gill was born in India, grew up in San Francisco and now lives in Washington DC, where he teaches Anthropology and Cultural Studies at the American University. His research looks at cinema, masculinity and migration in north India. Gill is also a Point Foundation Scholar.

A sleepy, idyllic Indian village, Ichchapur in southwest Odisha’s Kalahandi district, suddenly wakes up in a spontaneous uprising of Shudras (Dalits, Adivasis, and OBCs) against age-old, Brahmanic-Feudalism. The film captures the momentum and essence of the uprising over a span of more than a year, digs into history and cultural nuances, and builds in a narrative of the struggle through testimonies and voices of the very people in action.

About the film: Interweaving the folk music traditions of the mystic poet Kabir with the life and music of the late classical singer Kumar Gandharva, this film searches for that elusive sound, that jhini si awaaz, Kabir urges us to hear. Where does it resonate, that subtle sound? Journeying between folk and classical, oral and written, rural and urban expressions of this 15th century mystic poet of north India, the film finds moments of both continuity and rupture between these disparate worlds.


About the Filmmaker: #ShabnamVirmani, is a documentary film maker and artist in residence at the #SrishtiSchoolofArt, Design and Technology in Bangalore since 2002.Co-founder of the Drishti Media Arts and Human Rights collective, she has directed several documentaries in close partnership with grassroots women’s groups in the country (When Women Unite and Tu Zinda Hai, #Bol series among others) and also co-directed an award-winning community radio program with the Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan in Gujarat. #Virmani began her career as a sub-editor in The Times of India in Jaipur in 1987. A few months later she made journalistic history when she filed the Sati story on what happened in Deorala village, #Rajasthan. The next year she won a scholarship to do a Masters degree in Development Communication at the Cornell University, United States. She tried her hand at filmmaking there and her 20-minute #student film"Have a Nice Day," was a personal narrative of her #alienation, as an Indian student trying to come to terms with North American culture. Shabnam Virmani is the director of the#KabirProject. Started in 2003, the Kabir project brings together the experiences of a series of journeys in quest of this 15th century mystic poet in our contemporary worlds. It consists of #documentary films, 2 folk music#videos and 10 music CDs accompanied by books of the #poetry in translation. The films journey into contemporary spaces touched by his music and poetry. In her films, Shabnam juxtaposes the urban and the rural, the Indian and the foreign, the #classical and the #folk, and the secular and the sacred, in their many approaches to Kabir and the search for a universal voice.
