Q & A: Sheba Chhachhi

Over the last three decades, Sheba Chhachhi has formed a practice that traverses the fields of documentary filmmaking, women’s rights activism and installation art. With an inclination for the unseen and unspoken worlds of women—from female ascetics to the Yamuna goddess, incarnate in the Yamuna River—Chhachhi’s practice gives voice and bears witness to both everyday atrocities and mythological tales.
