ಕೆರೆ ಮತ್ತು ಕೆರೆ (The Lake and The Lake) 2019, HD video, India/USA, 38 mins
Kere mattu Kere dwells in the peripheries of a polluted lake in Bangalore, "India's Silicon Valley", where the act of observation is interrupted by flying foam, noxious gases, daydreams, and questions from passers-by. Despite its spectacular toxicity, the lake remains a valuable resource and refuge for counter-publics. Standing alongside fishing communities, migrant waste workers, private security guards, street dogs, and children, it is evident that there is no nature that doesn't also include all of us.
Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, English, and Bangla, are spoken and sung in the film amidst a chorus of non-human sounds.
