Dear All,

Our film, *ML 05 B 6055*, is being screened at the
Persistence/Resistance film festival, Film & Televison Institute of India,
Pune on the 15th of September. Please catch it if you can.


*ML 05 B 6055* documents the journey of a bazaar bus between the village of
Mawjatap in the East Khasi Hills and Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. The
film is an assemblage of images and extracts from conversations around the
bus with various people. It depicts the intricate linkage that exists
between the bus and rural life and livelihoods in Meghalaya and tries to
highlight the dependence that people have on the bus in all aspects of their
lives. *ML 05 B 6055* is, in a sense, a biographical portrait of a bus – how
a wooden bus is made, its functionality, systems that exist around it and
the associations and attachment that people have for their bus.

Venue: Preview Theatre, FTII, Pune

Date/Time: 15th Sep./ 2.15 pm

Warm Regards
