About the event

About the Collective: As an independent filmmaking collective, Ektara brings together diverse individuals, trained and untrained, to merge their creative abilities and to make and produce films that are informed by and reflect a common reality that emerges from our experiences, both in terms of content and aesthetics. Ektara has successfully produced short fiction, feature films, music videos and has also supported the dubbing of films from various languages into Hindi.

About the Film: The film “Ek Jagah Apni” is set in the city of Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh, India) in current time. It offers a glimpse into the lives of the transgender community in the city. It follows two protagonists’ lives as they seek a house to rent. It also shows the challenges they face in their daily lives, whether it is their workspace or other interactions. The prejudices of the wider society regarding transgender people and the stereotypes that need to be overcome, the lack of understanding about their situation and the discrimination, exploitation and oppression they face throughout their lives are reflected. At the same time, their courage, resilience and humanity shine through the difficulties they face.

In collaboration with


The Ice Factory at Ballard Estate (IFBE) is an experimental laboratory for transdisciplinary practices across modern and contemporary architecture, art, and pedagogy. The conserved and refashioned structure is itself a historical object; its complexity, diversity, and paradoxical forms of architecture are instruments for the invention of knowledge. Malik Architecture has created an architecture that does not settle, one with spaces to breathe through a crystallization and mutation of traditional, modern, and contemporary experiments. A century-old embodiment... of “the dreams that stuff is made of.” IFBE’s community of architects, artists, scholars, and students exists in the expanding complexity and multiplicity of the present without sacrificing a fidelity to pasts and archiving, to build and chronicle in the here and now, what Reinhard Koselleck felicitously called “futures past.”
