A film by Arijit Chatterjee, Patrick Shanahan and Asha Sumra
Unfired is a lyrical reflection on the spaces and resources of the Mangalore Tile industry. Terracotta production was initiated on the Malabar Coast, South India by German Missionaries in 1865 and triggered a widespread practice of building and living with clay. With the industry in a state of severe decline, this short film interweaves footage of functioning, abandoned and falling factories to reveal the rhythms and qualities of these environments. Select spaces are subtly re-appropriated to project imaginations for the future use of the spaces, products and clay.
