Kannada | 92 minutes | 2020 | English subtitles

The film is a meditation on the act of walking through the lives of three principal characters: Kumar, a photojournalist, Neelu, a salesgirl in a shoe shop and Amaresha, an elderly prisoner. The camera records the everyday experiences of the three characters, the minute details they observe, and their sense of time and place. Moving between dream and reality, the film is an exploration of the inner and outer landscapes they encounter.

The screening will be followed by a discussion between the director, Babu Eshwar Prasad and Chandan Gowda.
