Honing a quiet strength, Lata, a 22-year-old domestic worker, navigates her way through an upper class home in South Mumbai. Within her earshot exists a milieu of drivers, delivery men, other maids and watchmen that support and maintain the apartment building and the people who call it home. Doors consistently open and close, giving Lata selective access to the various contending realities that occupy this space.

THE PEEPUL TREE
by Sonja Feldmeier
Travelling alone through Northern India, Sonia Feldmeier witnesses the spectacular felling of a tree: An ancient, holy Peepul Tree is being cut down by seven lumbermen using handsaws and axes. Over the course of several days, she films their undertaking. She is in the thick of the activity, the language barrier however impedes verbal communication. From this subjective experience she creates audio portraits, which provide each lumberjack with their own individual musical presence in the film.
