How do I show the ocean space you carried inside you? By Abeer Khan & Bharati Kapadia

How do I show the ocean space you carried inside you?

HOW DO I SHOW THE OCEAN SPACE YOU CARRIED INSIDE YOU? is a film driven by love and wonder.
It is about two individuals, artists, living, working, and growing together and separately. Through the works of the male protagonist, the film brings to us his sharp commentary on the ethos of his times: growing consumerism and pollution; state violence and repression; and the yearning for freedom, both artistic and personal.
Memories and objects come together to situate these events in the city of Bombay, which is very different from the Mumbai of today.
