Set between the 22nd century (I); today’s Mumbai and Chandigarh: India’s first planned city designed by Le Corbusier in the 1950s (II); and the fictional future of an unrealised Indian science fiction movie from 1967 (III), the trilogy projects a mutant future fusing fiction and non-fiction through the juxtaposition of documentary footage, archival materials and new imagery (colour, in English, total 118 mins).
The event was free, with breaks and refreshments provided.
