On Hands: a screening of the full feature documentary by local filmmaker Laj Perhad Waghray

On Hands (2018) is a non-linear narrative which calls attention to an essential way of experiencing the world by using our hands. “In a time when our experiences of the world are mediated through technology, this introspective, poetic film focuses our attention on an essential and tactile way of understanding it. By documenting the work of 20 Makers, this project explores the satisfaction they derive from working with their hands. On Hands had a unique opportunity to reach a particular audience stuck at home due to the pandemic. It is a remarkable story that documents the work of 20 artists.” Waghray will be in attendance for a Q & A session afterward.
