|Filmmaker/s Bio Note/s||
Subasri has been a documentary filmmaker for the past 10 years. She also heads the Media Lab of the Indian Institute for Human Settlement (IIHS). Her filmmaking work has ranged from a number of commissioned non-fiction films on rights based issues to documentary films. Her first documentary film Brave New Medium on internet censorship in South-East Asia, has been screened at film festivals, both nationally and internationally. The award-winning This or That Particular Person produced by the Public Service Broadcasting Trust (PSBT) looks at the idea of official identity documents, and in that context, the Unique Identity number. The film was adjudged as the Best Short Documentary Film at the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala (IDSFFK), 2013.
On 18th February 1983, around 1800 Bengali Muslims were killed in Nellie and surrounding villages in Assam, in one morning. No one was ever prosecuted and the incident remains in the annals of India’s violent history. This Film is a revisiting of the event and an exploration of how the survivors remember the violence 32 years later, and how do the spaces that have witnessed this violence continue to mark people’s relationship to history and memory.
