About Sahana

After studying Linguistics and French language from University of Calcutta and Alliance Française. Documenting the intricate use of indigenous technique in the making of wooden bullock cart wheel, my passion to film this about to extinct craft form, has given birth to my first documentary film Probing a circular motion. Since then a couple of documentary films were made on indigenous practices and communities such as mask makers of tribal Chow dance, Gutipua dancers of Orisa, Indigenous practices of midwifery in tribal communities of India. And later a film on junior artists of Bollywood titled Extras, the identity of politics had been made to showcase another Bollywood away from glitz and glamour. Inspired and connected to the communities of our world motivates me to create each audiovisual work in search of a better world. Indigenous craft and artisanal practices,medicinal and health practices, Folklore along with pressing social issues are of utter importance for me.
