Natasha Raheja

Natasha Raheja’s short film Cast in India calls attention to the connection between New York’s iconic manhole covers and the workers in India who make them. This is her story about making Cast in India, the material commodity chains undergirding urban infrastructures, and the intimate lives of the skilled craftsmen and laborers. The style foregrounds her preference for presence over explanation and reflexivity in the filmmaking process. Natasha is currently a PhD candidate in anthropology at New York University.
