Short description

Full name:The 1943 Bengal Famine: Moving (images) Towards Subaltern Epistemologies and Ontologies
Taking the Bengal Famine of 1943 as a site-event, my practice-based research aims to further and experiment with epistemologies and ontologies of expressions that emerge from the space of subalternity and investigate the possibilities and limits of it in film practices. The main research question that underpins this research is – how do we move images (specifically filmmaking practice) towards subaltern epistemologies and ontologies?
