Globalisierung und so. Zweifelhaft ein bisschen auch, natürlich. Ein kurzer Film von Natasha Raheja über die Gullideckel New Yorks, die in Indien von Hand und Fuß gemacht werden.
Cast in India raises questions around the disparate conditions that shape the geographies of production and consumption of everyday urban objects. Amidst this, I hope viewers recognize the dignity and skill of the foundry workers. The film also makes me think about how the mobility of workers compares to the mobility of the goods that they make. Enlivening the objects around us, the film also points to questions around the entrenched structures and conventions that obscure people and relations from our purview.
