As the never-say-stop Mumbai races about, there are hearts that march to a different beat. Set against the urban landscapes of Bombay, ‘Country of Bodies’ is a dance film that narrates the personal and intimate relationship of the city and its inhabitants. Five sequences run through the video, each representing a different relationship between the characters and the city, interweaved and intercut with the others to create a seamless portrait of life and living in the city of Bombay through dance.
Part of a larger in-development project that captures the relationship of Indian cities and its citizens. We looking for collaborations and funding for the other segments. For more details contact pr[at]puneetrakheja.com
