Join us for the premiere screening of Songs of Our Soil followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Aditi Maddali and writer – scholar Dr Gogu Shyamala.
Through Uyyala songs, an agricultural tradition rooted in the political expression of women in Telangana, Songs of Our Soil traces the histories of their resistance and memories of disillusionment. By looking at womenâs participation in major political movements, from the Telangana Peopleâs Movement to the demands of justice from the contemporary Mallana Sagar Irrigation project, this film attempts to complicate the relationship between memory, history and cultural production.
Aditi Maddali is a Mumbai-based researcher and multimedia producer. She is currently pursuing an MPhil in Women’s Studies.
Aditi Maddali received a grant from India Foundation for the Arts, under the Arts Research programme made possible with support from Titan Company Limited.
