Sarama, a film by Shailja Jain.

Posted by Hello

Sarama is a Film by Shailja Jain, an Animation and Films Design student from National Institute of Design,(NID), India. This Indian piece, based on the Hindu phrase honoring the virtue of the dog, applies the schemes of race, gender and class to animals. Amongst the ‘pure-bloods’ bred by Western bourgeois males and the ‘Jindo Dog’ that has become the Korean icon of nationalism, can ‘mom’-lacking both a good master and time-make herself up and handle the burden of taking care of her puppies? Can she survive?

read more about the film and the director. The director is currently based in Delhi, India.
