The Lake and The Lake Sindhu Thirumalaisamy

Films index A to Z

Kere mattu Kere

Bellandur, the biggest urban lake in Bangalore, India’s Silicon Valley, is so polluted that massive amounts of toxic white foam form on its surface; occasionally, pieces of the thick froth break off and float away on the breeze. Drawn to the strange phenomenon, the filmmaker observes the people who live near the lake, in spite of everything, and listens to the bustle of the shoreline world: people fishing, others sorting through trash, some dancing, and countless children and dogs wandering around. By taking an almost dreamlike approach, constantly mingling the beautiful and the ugly, Sindhu Thirumalaisamy has created a captivating, meditative essay on humans’ relationship with their environment.
