Mumbai, Mar 1 (PTI) Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, who made her directorial debut with “Nil Battey Sannata”, is all set to make a documentary on the handmade culture of India.
“Ashwiny has always been fascinated by documenting handmade culture of India and believes in the nature and human coexistence. She has been toying with the idea of working in an interdisciplinary way to do her bit for sustainable fashion and textile,” a release said.
The director visited Kutch with designer Paromita Banerjee and met some artisans there.
“It is my experience and quest to explore stories across visual ethnography and photography behind the cultures of life,” Ashwiny said in a statement here.
“I am trying to give a form to this art experiment as module for sustainable work,” she added.
She has always been a ardent traveller to the villages and has been documenting through a page called, ‘No Makeup Story’.
Ashwiny’s next directorial venture is “Bareilly Ki Barfi” featuring Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao.
