Jan Villa

Natasha Mendonca

Utilising a patchwork of images, the maker studies the personal consequences of a disaster for the inhabitants of post-colonial metropolis Mumbai.

Natasha Mendonca returns to Mumbai, the city of her birth, after the devastating floods of 2005. Alongside all the silent witnesses to nature's violence, she primarily records the personal consequences of this destruction and the way the disaster undermined the security of hearth and home. Jan Villa is not a linear narrative, but an impressive associative essay whereby the images seem sucked inwards as if in a vortex.
