This Road I Know
This Road I Know Dir | Yirmiyan Arthur Yhome Country | India | Doc | Eng | Hindi | 2015 | 00.59.00 | Comp Synopsis | captured as a personal narrative, ‘this road i know’ traverses the main highway that runs through the Indian states of Nagaland and Manipur, highlighting the changing experiences on the road over the years and introducing new dimensions and fears. It probes the complexities of identity while examining the ways violence is used there in so many ways. The region’s militarization, and the effect that has on people living there, is an obvious take-away from the film. But it also reflects a longing for a home that once was, nostalgia for the lost land of childhood and deep uncertainly about what is to come.
