As part of BCRW’s Transnational Feminisms Initiative, and in conjunction with the seminar “Bombay/Mumbai and Its Urban Imaginaries," filmmaker Surabhi Sharma presented her first film, Jari Mari: Of Cloth and Other Stories, which documents narratives of gender and informal labor as these relate to the broader processes of deindustrialization, on April 25, 2012 at Barnard College. Sharma also shared scenes from her latest work, Bidesia in Bombayya, a story of Bhojpuri music, migration and mobile phones.

Following the screening, Sharma participated in this discussion with students and audience members.

This event was co-sponsored by BCRW, the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race, The Forum on Migration, MESAAS, The Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, and the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia.
