Stolen Shorelines
Fri Mar 3, 8:00 PM
Lamakaan
‘Stolen Shorelines,’ a powerful and visually stimulating documentary written and directed by KA Shaji, highlights the disappearance of shorelines, especially in and around Thiruvananthapuram city. Shaji is an environmental journalist with two decades of intense engagement with Kerala’s climatic and livelihood issues.

It serves as a reminder of how encroachments on the natural ecosystems can trigger a series of disruptions to an already ecologically fragile piece of land. It establishes how corporate greed and wrong development notions aggravate the climate crisis in Vizhinjam, Kovalam, Shanghumugham, Muthalapozhi and all other beaches in Thiruvananthapuram, some of which, like Kovalam, once remained sought after by global tourists.

The documentary leaves you in a state of shock. It presents bare facts and shocking information using extensively researched data and testimonials from local people. It researches the imminent threats posed to our shorelines even as we dream about the long-term benefits of developmental projects that aim to make Kerala a superpower.

SCREENING FOLLOWED BY DISCUSSION with the Director!
