For the last decade, Monitor: South Asian Experimental Film + Video has carved out a unique place in Canada. It has held a steady engagement with an international community of artists, curators and critics, and has initiated dialogues around the shifting nature of South Asian politics, economies and landscape through artists’ film and video.

Curated by Shai Heredia, founder of Experimenta (India’s first experimental film festival), the works in Monitor 10 engage various forms of melodrama to produce wry, entertaining and complex political commentary. Foregrounding overwrought characters like seductive mothers, political villains, and campy sci fi/horror sets that seem to take on a life of their own, the videos engage with the politics of drama; linking the personal act to the political realm.
