SAREE REINVENTED (2018)
I was commissioned to edit a Lottery Funded 25 minute documentary filmed and directed by Malti Patel. This community documentary brings together the story of the saree told through a community of women in Bromley.
The interviews focussed on women’s own journey of migration from various parts – India, east Africa, Sri lanka – and their own relationship and identity with the saree. It examined how the ‘saree’ gets reinvented to adapt to the changing environment, trends, and technology to stay relevant as a strong cultural identity for many British Asian women. The film was shown at Croydon Clocktower in October 2019.
