Yashaswini Raghunandan uses film and sound to build narratives in the form of docu-fiction as a way to think about the present.

Her work exists in a blurred mythical space between hard labour and leisure, sleeping and waking, where ghosts, eclipses and ancient spirits communicate with the modern mortal world. Over the years her films have explored the movement of workers in India and traversed an extremely personal territory, inviting the viewer to enter the subjective world of memory, myth, and deep yearning. Both her visual and sonic worlds seem to be in a deeper dialogue with the history of cinema and its viewership over the years.

Working in the space between cinema and contemporary art, Yashaswini creates installations, videos, short and feature films that are often non-linear and transmit a strong sense of dislocation and otherworldliness.
