|Filmmaker/s Bio Note/s||
Pushpa’s heart has been in filmmaking ever since she attended a filmmaking workshop. That first brush with cinema drew her in and she continues to love the feeling of exploring the world through the camera. She was one of the filmmakers of the short workshop documentary Kyon that went on to be shown in many film festivals and workshops. She has assisted Anupama Srinivasan on some of her projects including the PSBT documentary I Wonder. This is her debut film. Anupama is a freelance filmmaker based in Delhi. She did her BA in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University where she also got an opportunity to take courses in Still Photography and Non-Fiction Filmmaking. She completed a three year course in Film Direction at the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune. She has been making documentaries and short films for over a decade, often shooting and editing her own films that have been screened at various national and international film festivals. Her interest in working with children led her to conduct filmmaking workshops with children and young people.
The Film is Pushpa’s journey as she tries to make sense of her own life and that of her women friends. Set in a lower middle class colony in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, it explores the lives of women, who are young, educated and bright, but feel bound and helpless when it comes to taking any major decision regarding their lives. Following their lives over three years, the Film documents the changes in their lives and tries to capture the essence of their existence, sometimes through conversations and sometimes by simply observing their seemingly innocuous everyday routines.
