De Sidere 7, An ensemble videocontemplation by Lata Mani & Nicholas Grandi | Film screening and discussion with feminist historian, Lata Mani 

Lata Mani is a Bangalore based feminist historian and cultural critic. She is the author of Contentious Traditions: The Debate on Sati in Colonial India (1998). 

De Sidere 7 is an experimental work that interweaves performance, dance, poetry, storytelling and text to reflect upon aspects of desire. Shot in Bangalore and Delhi, the film scripts the work of five performing artists into a sensorially rich meditation on desire’s vexed status as at once, animating force, object of suspicion and ground of contention. De Sidere 7 is conceived as a videocontemplation: a formally plural, multilayered composition intended to be experienced as an integrated whole.
