Arthshila Ahmedabad’s Film Showcase this week features ‘State of Housing’ by Sanjiv Shah and ‘The Burning Sun’ by S.N.S. Sastry.
About State of Housing:
A film directed by Sanjiv Shah, was commissioned as part of the State of Housing – Aspirations, Imaginaries and Realities in India exhibition held at Gallery MMB/Goethe Institute in Mumbai. The exhibition was curated by Rahul Mehrotra, Ranjit Hoskote and Kaiwan Mehta, produced by Urban Design Research Institute and the Architecture Foundation and supported by the Tata Trusts.
The Film articulates a Pan-Indian reality of the housing crisis in the voices of ordinary people across the country. The intent of the film was to complement the otherwise objective and historic as well as statistical reading of the State of Housing in the exhibition.
About The Burning Sun:
A film about the living conditions of slumdwellers in the city of Bombay. The candid interviews of slumdwellers reveal their scathing reactions to the slogan of Garibi Hatao, and the pretensions of politicians.
Join us for the screening at 11.30 am from Friday to Sunday, 02 – 04 December 2022.
