Wandering Cloud

A non-linear visual narrative about reconnecting with family; animism and veneration of the dead practised among the minority indigenous Ho tribe of Kolhan. A story about an oblivious and distant girl as she returns to her village after many years to meet her dying Grandmother. As she walks through the old changing landscape of the countryside, she revisits her childhood memories, her roots and self-identity.
