Songs of our soil

Director: Aditi Maddali

'Uyyala' songs are an agricultural tradition rooted in the political expression of women in Telangana. Through these oral traditions, Songs of our soil traces the histories of their resistance and memories of disillusionment. By looking at women’s participation in major political movements, from the Telangana People’s Movement to the demands of justice from the contemporary Mallana Sagar irrigation project, this film explores the relationship between memory, history, oral traditions and cultural production.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Laatash. Both are powerful films, showing the lives of women in India, Telangana and in the Sahara desert.
