About this Event

Join artist/filmmaker Monica Jahan Bose for the DC premiere of "Darchira River," a new performance film. The film is based on a performance about cimate change let by Monica in Katakhali Village, Bangladesh, on the banks of the Darchira River, which has been destroyed by climate change. The stunning footage shows women farmers of the village engage in singing, writing, and rituals towards healing climate change. In this ecofeminist work, the women reframe a Muslim ritual of writing wishes, info a feminist ritual of hope and renewal, using writing, turmeric and water. The film features village women's oral tradition songs along with an original score by DC musician and sound designer Sonia Herrero. Cinemotography: Shefali Akhter Shetu. Editing: Shefali Akhter Shetu and Monica Jahan Bose.

Join us at lunchtime on Friday for the DC premiere at Artomatic.
