Published [Place of publication not identified] : Privately Published, 2005


Description 1 online resource (59 min.)
Summary Across cultures, tradition bars women from engaging in activities of a certain kind like, the plough, the fishing net or the potter's wheel. 'Beyond the Wheel' takes a look at three women in Indian pottery, across the rural-urban, modern-traditional divides, with reference to the taboo of the wheel. For the 'modern' artist, Shampa, the taboo of course does not exist. 'Traditional' artists Sara and Neelmani do not touch the wheel. The film looks at how the taboo is turned on its head as they find a creative route to its circumvention, in the process inventing their 'own wheel'
