Rajat Nayyar is a filmmaker, anthropologist and a PhD student at the Department of Theatre, York University. He is interested in using fiction, imagination and performance as a practice in producing collaborative audio-visual ethnography. Rajat is the founder of Espírito Kashi, a media project working on finding new embodied and critical ways of engaging with intangible heritage. His recent film, Kashi Labh, on the social aesthetics of dying and death in Kashi, India’s holy city, continues to reach newer audiences, conferences, film festivals, as well as private institutions. The film facilitates an intimate space for discussing dying, death and end-of-life care.
