Prior to the opening reception of Shhh…, Arts + Literature Laboratory presents a reading by Chitra Neogy at 6pm from her work of fiction, Blood Words: A Warriors Walk, IPMG, 2016. The book is a prequel to her film of the same name. Immediately following her reading, ALL will premier a “vignette” trailer for the film Blood Words as an exclusive to ALL attendees. Neogy uses poetic and cinematic language in her tale of a woman’s journey experiencing pain, anger, love, and compassion as she struggles against the Philistines and bourgeois forces in society. It’s a story that reflects a notion of space and time as perceived through the eyes of a young Indian woman whose voice becomes the voice of the woman in all of us.
