The Colour of My Home

No sting, no expose’, no scoop on why/how/who engineered the pogrom…..just an attempt to understand what it means to be uprooted and then “rehabilitated”. What does it take to “move on” after a violent displacement? How do you explain a new home to your child? To live with the tag, “IDP” or “Internally Displaced Person”, as described in official parlance! How do you reclaim citizenship in times such as these?

Sanjay Barnela, based in India, is founder of Moving Images, a team of documentary filmmakers and academics, making a range of award winning films over the last twenty years, many in the niche area of conservation and livelihoods, at the political interface between the environment and local communities. His body of work was recognized by the CMS VATAVARAN Prithvi Ratna Award (2014). In 2012, Sanjay joined the Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore, where he heads Srishti Films, a center dedicated to teaching professional non-fiction film making.

Farah Naqvi, an alumnus of Columbia University, is a writer, feminist and activist from India. Her work has spanned a range of media (including the book Waves in the Hinterland about Dalit women journalists, 2007), and locations – from remote villages to public policy spaces (including the National Advisory Council, 2010-2014) – engaging with gender, caste, and minority identity, towards justice, democratic rights and freedom from violence. For nearly two decades, she has worked on the issue of hate-based communal violence and internal displacement in India.
