Leaf Fall

Neha Choksi’s Leaf Fall records a single day’s work of stripping a rural peepul tree of all its leaves, save an autumnal sprig at the tip of a single high branch.  This lyrical look at a process of laying bare and of stripping away everything until the ordinary is made singular, is a picture of severe loss as a starting point for life’s renewal.

 

Leaf Fall is being screened as part of the UMOCA ongoing video series, Looped.
