I have been working on a project about mural paintings in Dehradun. These paintings date from the 18th to the early 20th century, and can be found all along the valley.
Its been quite a journey trying to find a way to read these images. It has taken me from Art History to the politics of the environment to the birth of modern Indian theatre.
Even as I was trying to understand what I was seeing, I was also encountering all these lives that were unfolding around these images.
‘Wall Stories,’ is about that journey. I’m working through my ideas and am posting bits from the film for feedback. Thanks for watching.
