Jan Villa

After the monsoon floods of 2005 that submerged Bombay, the filmmaker returns to her city to examine the personal impact of the devastating event. A tapestry of images studies the space of a post-colonial metropolis but in a way that deeply implicates the personal. The destruction wreaked by the floods becomes a telling and a dismantling of other devastations and the sanctuaries of family and home.

Film notes

In its structure, Jan Villa is a vortex, drawing to its center all that surrounds it.
