Ripples Under The Skin ( 2022/Hindi/ 29 mins) Dir. Farha Khatun. A 65-year-old man trudges along the lanes and bylanes of a city – a city that is rapidly changing, a city where the toils of this man with the mashaq is a story to be curated, frozen, archived as a relic of the past … ‘Ripples Under the Skin’ tells the story of the Calcutta that lurks behind the glitz and glamour of today’s Calcutta, it tells the story of a community of migrant workers who had come to this city to make a living, a city that never invited them yet somehow they made home, even though ‘home’ remains elusive, a city that nourishes, waters itself through the toils of people like Nazim chacha, yet conveniently forgets, casts them away when it chooses to walk towards the future.
