Final Thesis Film
Shifting Tides is my final year project where I made a documentary film about the Unt Maldhari (camel herders) in the Kutch region of Gujarat.
Ahmedbhai and Ismailbhai are few of the remaining Unt Maldharis who have continued their forefathers business. They are the caretakers of the Kharai camels who they have had a bond with for almost seven generations since they settled on the coast of Kutch. The Maldharis lead their camels who have to swim more than 3 km to graze in the mangroves. They now face the problem of invasion in their livelihood which they have managed to sustain till today.
