In a world moving to a total mechanization of human life, the film inquires deeply into the question of speed and progress and proposes a way of slowing down to find synch with the present moment. Or is there another way of re-membering the originary impulse of being human? It is the story of a journey that begins at home with a woman and digital camera, and grows into a travel across Nomadsland.

The film narrative corresponds to the pilgrim’s progress as s/he walks from feeling tied and burdened to feeling freer and lighter. Sometimes knowing best things in life like rain, wind, stars & sunlight yet come for free is liberating; remembering that my two feet can often carry me farther than I can imagine, is a discovery.

In collaboration with Vikalp Bengaluru
