Synopsis

In Kondwall village, women whisper secrets of their lost loves, a young man hunts for honey in the forest, and a tiger hides in the trees. As disembodied voices float through evocative black and white shots of the dense forest and quiet village, the camera searches for intimate stories and secrets. Sonically layered and intricately constructed, And What is the Summer Saying is a mystical film poem about Kondwall village, its inhabitants and the surrounding flora and fauna.

In a serene apartment in Mumbai, 70-year-old widow Kati and her Nepali domestic helper, Mati cook together as various ephemera are strewn across the kitchen table: old childhood photographs, seashells and medicine. The two women observe a short-lived blooming flower before they take an afternoon nap. However, the line between dreams and reality becomes as indistinguishable as the faded blossom.

Synopsis

Two scientists trudge through a forest, setting up cameras to capture animal movements at night. Far away in the city, an old woman who moved away from the forest a long time ago invokes memories of her late husband. Together, these dimly-lit images compose a sensual dreamscape where the sensorial is heightened in the darkness.
