A Found Footage Film on Bygone Bengaluru

Kannada films of the past decades contain an unexpected archive of the city’s landscape. Through this found footage film made with scenes from the 60s, we try to look at how Bengaluru has changed since then. The film is at once an appeal to people’s nostalgia for a bygone-era, as well as an attempt to negotiate with its changing nature.

Footage from:
Mayor Muthanna (1969) (starring Dr. Rajkumar)
Manne Katti Nodu (1966)
Nanda-Deeoa (1932)
Lakshadeshwara (1968)
Jedare Bale (1968)
Bhagyada Bagilu (1968)
