We are delighted to share that Humaira Bilkis’ CDC Diploma film Maine Dilli Nahin Dekha (I Am Yet To See Delhi) is now available to view online at Kriti Film Club’s online portal, Doculive. The film is available to watch from 13 - 31 July 2022.
Film synopsis: The film is a subjective journey, exploring a new city. The filmmaker discovers the soul of the city, not in its museums, mausoleums and architecture, but in her relationship with its people. The process of looking at the urban space offers the filmmaker a chance to relook at her own space, identity and cultural moorings. Moving alone to Delhi to study film, the ‘I’ loses herself in the city, her camera becoming a part of her. Listening to the breath of the people who inhabit this place – its roads, markets, mosques and tourist spots – and following where her gaze takes her, she picks up casual conversations and the general buzz, beginning to hear the timbre of the city. Sinking deeply into the word that is ‘I’, she spells out the quavering movements of her outsider feelings. A personal journey inscribing Delhi’s pulse.
