On Body & Sole (summer 2018/19)

SYNOPSIS

Sridhar Reddy has over 200 miles of quiet Swiss countryside sprawled out before him and an urgent message he is carrying forward with every step of his two-week trek. This meditative film observes a lonely run in a fast-moving world, considers the corrosion of the body on the road, and ponders the role of the filmmaker on this journey.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Following up with Sri on his 8th run, we wanted to approach the work differently. With Sri’s trust, I leaned into by poetic impulses and started to think about the run as a reflection of Sri’s aging body, dedication to the cause, and frustration with isolation on the road.
