|“Turup” is the first feature film from the Ektara Collective, an independent, autonomous, non-funded group of people who seek to combine creative efforts and imagination and collaborate with trained and untrained people to make films that are content wise and aesthetically located in people’s subjective, contextual realities and experiences. Through this process, Ektara has made and produced 2 short fiction films earlier (Chanda Ke Joote, 22mins, 2011; Jaadui Machchi, 38mins, 2013).
We are excited to welcome Maheen Mirza, one of the film’s directors and member of Ektara Collective, to The Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs at the New School for a discussion after the film!
