We are here to stay (Enkulu ippuva, mulpane)

Short documentary / Tulu, Kannada / 20 mins

Against a canvas of vibrant and evocative images of a fishing harbour “We are here to stay” is a poetic essay that reframes dominant narratives with the ‘unheard’ voices of Dalit fisherwomen. Multiple layers of meaning emerge with the intertwining of memories, stories and the landscape by the sea.
