Ami Konn? (Who are we?)

Ami Konn (Who are we?) is a short produced for the Storytelling Parade. The film is based on Vithai Zaraunkar, a post graduate of the Goa University and a member of the Kunbi tribe – an aboriginal community in the western Indian state of Goa.

Not permitting insults about her origins, through her schooling, Vithai took matters into her own hands and decided to embrace her roots. She took on a project to record the oral stories and songs of her tribe and the recordings will be a part of the national archive in Delhi with the project funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Govt of India.

The film seeks to explore the mind of Vithai in her own words.
