Synopsis/ Description
A call from the periphery of sanity... a series of dream narratives, and accounts of spiritual possession as experienced by women ‘petitioners’ at the shrine of a Sufi saint in North India. The Film invites the viewer to a fantastical world, where fear and desire are experienced through dreams and ‘afflictions of the air’. The shrine is a space where performance becomes the only rule of engagement and one can begin to think of the possibilities that ‘insanity’ produces.
