An impressionistic film that paints a picture of Kozhikode in North Kerala and the spiritual immersion of its ordinary town-dwellers in music. A reflective essay traversing a music culture that is cosmopolitan, having strong local and global influences, it explores the music and memories of the city and its people.

The Quantum Indians is the compelling and inspirational story of three Indian scientists -Satyendra Nath Bose, C.V. Raman and Meghnad Saha - who revolutionised the world of Physics and Indian Science in the early part of the 20th century.

The Film is inspired by the work of Urvashi Butalia and Ritu Menon, who co-founded the first feminist publishing house in India: Kali for Women. It looks back on thirty years in publishing and focusses on the feminist politics and friendships that make this survival possible.

The sensibilities of Adoor Gopalakrishnan and the universal appeal of his films.

Missing Days

September 20, 2019

They set off, looking for work in far-off places, but disappeared along the way. Inspired by Shiv Kumar Batalvi’s “birha” poetry, the film traces the longing on both sides: on the part of those who are missing, and those that wait for them to return.

A Drop of Sunshine

August 4, 2011

Schizophrenia. It may be one word, but it immediately conjures up multiple connotations. Mad. Incurable. Violent. Suicidal. Chemical imbalances. Crazy. A lifelong condition. Inevitable dependency on Medicines. Dark. Terrible. 'A Drop of Sunshine' challenges these notions. It questions the mainstream view of the condition and seeks alternate ways of recovering from it. Through the powerful story of its young and gutsy protagonist, Reshma Valiappan, it seeks to give viewers a new vocabulary to address the stigmatized mental illness. The film proposes that the only treatment method that can work in Schizophrenia is one where the so-called 'patient' is encouraged and empowered to become an equal partner in the process of healing.

About Elsewhere

January 1, 2007

About Elsewhere seeks to foreground the impossibility of fixing notions of sexuality through ideas of 'identity' and 'language'. As the film moves through the various worlds the filmmaker inhabits, it suggests a self in constant formation; one that constructs itself from parts and places that are in themselves, fragments of memory and experience.
