SAREE REINVENTED (2018)
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 South Asian women in Bromley. The interviews focussed on the 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’ adapts to the changing environment, trends, and technology to stay relevant as a strong cultural identity for many British Asian women.
Screened at Croydon Clocktower in October 2019.
