After the monsoon floods of 2005 that submerged Mumbai, the filmmaker returns to her city to examine the personal impact of the devastating event. The result is ]]>Jan Villa]]>, a tapestry of images that studies the space of a post-colonial metropolis but in a way that deeply implicates the personal. The destruction wreaked by the floods becomes a telling and a dismantling of other devastations and the sanctuaries of family and home.
