Director Statement

This film is a personal note on my experience of perceiving the time and locating myself in a space on my everyday mundane. It also crosses paths with my own identity and my identifications with the community I am hailing from. Thus, it is a testimony of the subaltern everyday while at the same time an ode to it. It is also an attempt to mark my terrains and territories in a familiar geography, in which my self and identity was formed and by which it was influenced.
