About this event

A Delicate Weave and Do Din Ka Mela Documentary Film Screening

Kutch ‘…an island of peace in a sea of intolerance…”

This is how the two film makers from Mumbai, Anjali Monteiro and K.P. Jayasankar describe Kutch, the semi-arid region in Gujarat, where the two documentary films were shot.

‘A delicate Weave’ follows four diverse musical journeys drawing on the poetic and musical traditions of Kabir and Shah Bhitai, as well as the folk and crafts traditions of the region. These remarkable musicians and singers bear testimony to how these oral traditions of compassion are being passed down from one generation to the next.

Year: 2017, Language: Kutchi and Hindi Subtitles: English, Duration: 62 mins

Do Din ka Mela: “Nothing in the world will last – it is but a two day fair” sings Mura Lala Fafal, drawing inspiration from the Sufi traditions of Sant Kabir and Abdul Lateef Bhita’i. He is accompanied on the Jodiya Pava (double flute) by his nephew Kanji Rana Sanjot. Mura and Kanji are Meghwals, a pastoral Dalit community that lives on the edge of the Great Rann of Kutch, in the Western Indian state of Gujarat. The Great Rann of Kutch is a vast salt marsh/desert that separates India and Pakistan

Year: 2009, Language: Kutchi and Gujarati, Subtitles: English, Duration: 60 mins

The screening of these films is followed by a Q&A with the Directors via video conference
