Filming Lahaul is a visual ethnographic project which began in 2014, with the goal of creating and promoting informed visual research on diverse socio-cultural processes in contemporary Lahaul. Lahaul valley falls under the Trans Himalayan Lahaul and Spiti District of Himachal Pradesh, India.
The filming project will eventually culminate in a full length documentary. Meanwhile, through this space, we will share project updates and post short video fragments on themes relevant to people and the region. We wish to use documentary art as a medium to facilitate grassroots dialogue and collective action across class, caste and gender on transformation processes unfolding not only in Lahaul valley but overall in the Himalayas.
We look forward to your comments and feedback upon the material posted.
