Name/Artist Nick: Santasil Mallik/ Hyash Tanmoy Personal URL (optional): @santasilmallik @zerodegreearts Country: India Work title/duration: 13' Year/country when/where it was made: 2019/ India Short description (1 sentence): "A story? No, no stories. Never again" Explication (no more than 600 words): Farrago is an unkempt diary that generates a stream of audio-visual dissonance without an attempt to resolve it. While some parts of the varied montage traverse along with contemporary political issues, other parts blend fictional and documentary narratives to spawn a meaningless tale of a city and its fathomless vigor. This film failingly tries to construct a narrative out of small, disjointed and unassociated clips; yet, this failure itself is imbued with sporadic instances of political statements.
