One Last Sulaimani
One Last Sulaimani explores the change in the emotional attachments of the people who has been in Johnson Market from the past so many years, and how the social life of the people of these small urban spaces will be affected once this space disappears. This film is an attempt to capture the social and cultural life of small urban spaces. An ethnographic study of to-be demolished 99 years old Johnson Market at Bangalore. The film explores the anxieties and changing spatial practices of the marginal vendors, shopkeepers and frequent visitors now occupying the space. Their interaction with, and consciousness about the upcoming structures that would replace the market is a frame of loss and voidness.
