Seeing BinariesThis short film explores the question of visual representation and cultural binaries through sensorial glimpses of our every day lives. Inspired by Harvard University’s Sensory Ethnography Lab (SEL) practice of making poetic films that combines aesthetics and ethnography.

Kaarvan is beginning to explore the visual representation of rural women through audiovisual media rather than purely verbal sign systems — we hope to use the visual medium as equalizer for language barriers. Like our partner The British Asian Trust we hope to transform lives through skills development — skills pertaining not only to profession but also communication, critical thinking and conflict transformation skills (turning a problem into an opportunity).
