This screening brings together two films about end of life and caregivers. Jole Dobe Na (2020) is a fiction film set within the haunting of a hospital, made in response to a prompt by Delhi-based Raqs Media Collective for the Yokohama Triennale, Japan. Grace (2022) is a documentary about Karen Wentworth, the second person to sign up for end-of-life options under the newly passed Right To Dignified Death law in Maine, USA.


Naeem Mohaiemen combines photography, films, and essays to research forms of utopia-dystopia in South Asia after 1947. He is Associate Professor of Visual Arts & Concentration Head of Photography at Columbia University, New York.

The film screening will happen on SEA Campus followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
