In a world that has grown more dynamic and uncertain, where diversity and differences make way for standardization and uniformity, the film explores the effects of a rapidly changing landscape on people's lives and livelihoods.
 
Set in Wayanad, part of the fragile ecosystem of the western ghats in South India, the film takes you on a journey through a region that is witnessing drastic transformation in the name of 'development'.
 
On October 3, 2014, Director, Sunanda Bhat, will join us for a film screening and conversation with faculty, students, and filmmakers hosted by Anuradha Mathur, Professor of Landscape Architecture.
 
Sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania, Department of Landcape Architecture, DiverseDesign, South Asia Studies Department, South Asia Center, and camra.
