Polluted lakes in Bangalore, the “Silicon Valley of India”, produce toxic foams and fires that challenge our understanding of what a lake can be. However, they remain valuable resources and refuges where counter-publics coexist. The Lake and The Lake dwells in the peripheries of one such lake, enacting an observational mode that is interrupted by flying foam, noxious gases, daydreams, and questions from passers-by. Standing alongside fishing communities, migrant waste workers, private security guards, street dogs, and children, it is evident that there is no “nature” that doesn’t also include all of us.

Thirumalaisamy will be in-person at the screening.
