Share Event

Ladhamba Tayem; Future Continuous envisions indigenous people across time, exploring their existence in the space-time continuum. Through a conversation between a sixteenth-century Yakthung warrior and a future indigenous astronaut or time traveller, the film invites viewers to consider their own role in shaping the future. It raises awareness of the ongoing struggle against colonialism while questioning the flexibility of time and how we can actively weave the tapestry of the future.
