Blood Earth Film

Blood Earth is an experimental film shot and directed by Kush Badhwar and co-edited by Chris McGuinness and Delhi Sultanate. The film was created over a period of two years since our first visit to Kucheipadar and underwent a series of changes since the first cut was screened at the Word Sound Power exhibition at the Goethe Institut New Delhi in 2012. The present version was first screened at the 2013 Experimenta film festival in Bangalore where it won the Adolfas Mekas award. Blood Earth went on to be screened at the 2014 Berlinale International Film festival as part of the Forum Expanded category.

Blood Earth interweaves the efforts to record song, farming, village life and a political meeting to improvise a junction between voice, music, silence, sound and noise.
