You don’t belong, by Spandan Banerjee (75’)
Disparate characters who are bound together by a filmmaker’s search for the elusive author of a song, popular in collective memory as a traditional folk song. What follows is a long self-reflexive journey into the world of folk, a journey, which nudges established ideas of home, nostalgia, belonging, and authorship as the film explores deeper into the song that serves for a metaphor of the contemporary fragmented times.
Travelling across remembered lands and forgotten histories following the unseen path of migration that music takes, ‘You Don’t Belong’ asks some important questions about the encounter between art and mass production, creation and ownership in a country rich with myriad folk and oral traditions.
The screening will be followed by a Q & A.
