Still: Letter From Your Far-Off Country
Indian-American artist, researcher, filmmaker and video journalist Suneil SANZGIRI holds a MSc in Art, Culture and Technology and was a resident of the SOMA programme in Mexico City in 2016. In his work, Sanzgiri tries to investigate how systems of oppression are informed and reinforced by trauma, history and memory. His experimental videos, essays, animations and installations raise questions about culture, identity, heritage and diaspora in relation to structural violence, and have been exhibited all over the world. His experimental short film At Home But Not at Home had its world premiere at IFFR 2020. Letter From Your Far-Off Country (2020) is his second film in a series of new works addressing ancestral memory, diaspora, history, decoloniality, and cross-continental solidarity.
