A talk by Uzramma,  interwoven with the screening of the film Ulatbasi by Handloom Futures  Uzramma’s talk draws on her nearly 30 years of involvement in the cotton handloom weaving industry and gives insights for possibilities of sharing embodied knowledge and the ways in which we can reimagine the future of the India and the planet through the lens of Weaving.  The talk by Uzramma will be interwoven with the film Ulatbasi. How to speak without words? How to follow zigzags of the shuttle? How to tune a loom? How to seek the teacher inside yourself? Weaving is known but not spoken. The film zig zags between the weaving and the musical practice of weavers in Kachchh, Gujarat and the one lone weaver in Chirala, Andhra Pradesh who holds the memory of a time before the Jacquard loom robbed them of the language of handloom.  From the sky hangs the thread! Kabir Uzramma has worked with handlooms for 27 years, and now mentors activists, and designers in the field. She has founded and led organisations that have contributed significantly to creating ways of partnering and She has been a member of policy groups for the handloom industry constituted by the Planning Commission and the PMO, and has contributed to scholarship and research on cotton growing, weaving, marketing and reimagining our history, politics and culture.
