Kotpad Weaving -The Story of a Race Against Time:
An out-of-the-world natural dyeing process followed by weaving of an awe-inspiring fabric adorned with nature-inspired tribal motifs is what brings global identity and recognition to Kotpad handloom. But are the factors making the weave unique also the very reasons of its languishing days? Will such a tradition always keep standing the test of time? Through this Documentary titled ‘Kotpad Weaving : The Story of a Race Against Time’, we have tried to find the answers.
The Filmmaker will be present for the screening.
This documentary is about a river of the Western Ghats of India – “Aghanashini”, which is a unique river from the perspective that it still flows in its natural course due to absence of any dams to change its flow and it doesn’t have any industries along its path to pollute its water. In that sense, so far it remains untamed and unpolluted by man.Made over a span of two years, the film covers the story of the river via various stories along its flow, some of which are shot for the first time.
