Film Screening – Bhatthi (The Kiln)

Mohalla Films (Community Films) proudly presents BHATTHI (THE KILN, 2023), an ecofilm short based on the life of a 21st century potter family who make bhar or earthen teacups in India. The clay teacups are used once, discarded, retrieved, remade and sent out again to the tea stalls in a generations-old cycle. Will this craft survive the onslaught of plastic cups, the No. 1 source of soil and marine pollution?

Mohalla Films is a family-run film collective by San Francisco filmmakers and educators Abhijeet Paul and Rebecca Whittington. The collective wants to bring global ecocinema to San Francisco in the belief that it is important to learn about how people in other parts of the world are dealing with deep environmental crises in traditional and innovative ways every day.

Mohalla Films is returning to South Asia in late July 2024 to work on a narrative ecofilm, BISHTEL (POISON OIL) based on a short story by a marginal Muslim farmer and writer, Ansaruddin. The film shows Goni, a marginal farmer, fighting to keep his patch from getting contaminated by fertilizers and toxic sprays as his family struggles to stay afloat.
