Meghna Haldar's 'Dirt'
In this short video, Meghna Haldar talks to Ashok Mathur about
her feature documentary in which she asks: "What is it about
feeling dirty that shames us into silence and disgust?".
From the slums of Kolkata to Vancouver's Downtown Eastside to a
barbeque joint in Central Texas - everyone has a different story.
Dirt isn't just a four letter word, it contains a world of meaning
spanning the divine to the profane. A quixotic odyssey into all
things unclean, featuring animation to make Hieronymus Bosch blush,
tracks from Godspeed You! Black Emperor and an experimental
soundscape by Clinker, 'Dirt' digs deep to illuminate the
positively filthy experience of being human.
