Letter from Korlai

In Letter from Korlai, grainy 16mm images and a voice reading a fictional letter unfold a phantasmagoric, indeterminate space. The images of the village of Korlai on India’s Konkan coast present themselves as a surface that is haptic rather than visual while the elegiac voiceover maps out an inner wold of remembrance and associations. Letter for Korlai ultimately creates a subjective vision and personal memory of Korlai in which the viewer can insert herself, can fade-in and out again, and let her own memories and visions surface.
