Absence
  • Year2018
  • Duration82 min

A man disappears from a village in rural India. This lyrical portrait combines narratives of men departing for big cities in pursuit of employment, and local folklore. Mist descends and the moon hangs low; inspired by the poetry of Shiv Kumasi Batalvi, Etka Mittal captures the sense of limbo, solitude and loss, in the absence of a loved one.
