बिन सावल्यांच्या गावात (In a shadowless Town) Documentary Film Screening followed by a Discussion
Runtime: 63 min. Dir.: Gouri Patwardhan
Synopsis How is the city made? What is remembered when it is being made… and what is forgotten? Raising these crucial questions the film looks at how heritage walks in Pune city seek to define the history of the city in a narrow mold, exclusive to upper castes while claiming to represent the city. What has the erasure of historic figures and buildings meant for the Dalit Bahujan community in the city and their struggle to reclaim some of them? Walking backwards in time the film tries to trace the imprint of caste on history and geography in Pune.
