‘Kashi Labh’ at German International Ethnographic Film Festival 2020 in an online FREE version
Happy to let you all know that my film ‘Kashi Labh’ will be screened at German International Ethnographic Film Festival 2020 in an online FREE version from May 13-17.
In the film Kashi Labh, family members often travel long distances to gather and engage with the human, non-human and spiritual aspects of the city during their stay at a salvation home in Kashi. Such everyday performances of care and anticipation make Moksha possible for their dying relative. However, this kind of family centred ‘care’ now seems like a distant past.
Senior care homes around the world are one of the worst affected by Covid-19. How can family centred end of life care be practiced during the time of extreme social distancing? How does the pandemic impact people’s idea and practice of good death at a time when intimacy is impossible? This particular screening brings a strange opportunity to reflect upon such concerns.
Join me in exploring these questions after the screening of Kashi Labh on 14th May at 13:00 (Germany), as the festival will also stream the entire program and have the filmmakers stay tuned for a chat.
