Contents:
Questioning the notion of the self as a pre-given, primordial and purposive entity, this film explores the gamut of modes in which identities are produced, circulated and consumed within the modern urban Indian culture. Identity is both difference and relationship; identity is enmeshed in relations of power, be they of gender, race or religion. Traversing a multi-cultural terrain inhabited by Paul Klee and the Indo-Anglian poet, A.K. Ramanujan, by popular television commercials and the writings of riot-affected children, by Michel Foucault and Sant Kabir, the medieval Sufi poet, the video is an invitation to examine anew our praxis of identity as a site of resistance and change.
