Karachi Circular Railway
Filmmaker: Ivan Sigal
Material: Single-channel version
KCR is a multimedia installation that traces the path of the defunct Karachi Circular Railway. The film takes the viewer on a meditative journey through one of the world’s most complex and conflicted megacities, exploring its urban and human landscape through video, stills, text and drone footage. It is available for display in several formats. In Karachi it is a single channel video projected onto a large outdoor screen.
Description of event (from project website): Numaish—Urban Interventions in Public Space consists of over two dozen installations and artefacts created by designers, artists, filmmakers, scientists and engineers. This exhibition will travel to four locations in Karachi during April and May. It is a non-commercial venture and aims to encourage curiosity and elicit healthy exchanges among the people who frequent these spaces.
Numaish will open at the Frere Hall gardens (Saddar Town) and will end at Machhar Colony in Keamari, in four different locations in Karachi through the end of May 2015.
