Mod Bhaang (The Ebb Tide) by Renu Savant
Shot through the monsoon in the creek of Mirya village, the Film is a documentation of its fisherfolk, recording their unfolding presence and fishing work. It brings out their working rhythms, dreams and desires, generational legacies of hard labour and their relationships to the sea and the fish as a sacred natural resource.
