'Miyar House' in International Film Festival

Media Release

Mumbai, Oct 10: After having attended the ‘Kerala Short and Documentary Film Festival’ in August 2011, ‘Miyar House’, a feature length documentary film opened in ‘The Prague Indian Film Festival’ held in Prague, Czech Republic from October 6 to 9, 2011. This annual Film Festival has been showcasing Indian films to the people of Prague and Czech Republic for the last four to five years.

‘Miyar House’ will also be attending the ‘Mumbai Film Festival’ that is to take place in Mumbai from the October 13 to 23, 2011 in the ‘Real Reel’ section. This section has feature length documentaries from all over the world.

Synopsis of the film

The filmmaker’s 200-year-old ancestral house in a remote village in Karnataka, India is dismantled, giving an opportunity for him to undertake a journey into a past that he shares not only with his extended family, but also with successive generations of India’s rural population. A realization of the inevitability of a transition marks this journey that could well be the journey of a country that has propelled itself into modernity. As plans are on for the house to get reconstructed elsewhere in an open air museum, out of its original context - the fossilization seems to be complete.
