Time Weavers

When time changes everything around us, we try to bring the past to life.

Quite far into the twentieth century, Whitefield was a village in India, resided mainly by Anglo-Indians, and retired individuals. It was the IT boom in Bangalore that attracted youth in large numbers to Whitefield, which is now a developed and sought-after suburb of Bengaluru.

Roads have been built, and tall buildings have risen from the ground, but if one walks around them, deeper towards the centre, through open wooden gates, and under canopies of flowering trees, one will find a hidden town inhabited by stories, waiting to inspire.

‘Time Weavers’ is a documentary about those people who have seen Whitefield through its age of transformation, and about those who preserve the past, live in the present, and have hope from the future.

Director Statement

Since an early age, I have been fascinated by the richness of this world, and have been passionate about travelling. It is the vibrancy and the grandeur of nature and architecture that inspires me. I believe that by meeting new people, working with them, and understanding their view of the world, one can acquire the knowledge that cannot be found in books.

This is what carried me to explore film making, which I believe is one of the art forms that engage the most in attempting to understand the environment we live in.
