Jangbar is a single screen gallery work, shot on 35mm on location in East Africa, specifically Zanzibar and Kenya. The film takes as its starting point the trade and immigration routes between India and Africa. Jangbar will use research and real events to create a fictional film, formed around a non-linear narrative told through sound and image. The filming focuses on architecture and landscape, as well as the body, language, voice and dialogue - a new development in the artist's practice.
Jangbar was co-produced with Artsadmin and supported by New Art Exchange Nottingham.
