A fresh look at contemporary art through the vibrant and often chaotic effort to stage India’s first contemporary biennale.
From the frontline of art, the film follows a selection of big name Indian and international artists as they create new and ambitious works in beautiful but derelict colonial spaces. The process dominates with limited resources, lack of expertise, errant union labourers, no electricity, equatorial heat, swarms of mosquitoes and an amazing collective effort.
The film has screened at several festivals and been broadcast internationally and is available on VOD.
