Nagari ReRuns

A public retrospective of Nagari films, showing the 10 short films that were made for the 2020 competition. The programme will consist of a screening, followed by discussion with the filmmakers, moderated by the Charles Correa Foundation team as a launch of Nagari 2021 — ‘People and Livelihoods’ in Indian cities.

We hope that watching and discussing ‘ReRuns’ brings continuity between the previous and the current focus, seeing the connection from Housing Adequacy to People and Livelihoods. It will attempt not only to see film as a medium to narrate the issues, but really to initiate discussion on inadequacies in the urban realm and extend its representation and relevance in India.

The first screening, ‘Udta Banaras’, will take place on Friday, 23 July, 2021.

The film attempts to document displacement and resettlement due to the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, through the experiences of Rakesh Kannaujia, a former resident of the Dalit Basti near the temple. The film looks at his experience of displacement while questioning what development means for a culturally rich city like Banaras.
