We are happy to host film screenings on Fridays of October
by our partner and bangaloREsidency
host Maraa, as part of October Jam 2018. Something in the Air
presents films around the blind spots in human condition in all its slowness and erratic appearances. The selected films are reflective of the theme and in essence, an assertion of ghostly presences, that haunt us in everyday life.
