SESSION TIMES

Girmitiyas, were indentured labourers from India transported to work on sugar cane plantations in Fiji, once a British colony, as part of the Indian indenture system. A deceitful system of enslavement by the British Empire.

My mother, Roshni Singh, and I explore Fiji as a place of home, family and our Girmit history through the lenses of the camera (iPhone and super8) and sound recordings (mini-zoom recorder and iPhones). Communicating to each other and bringing into our collective consciousness once-forgotten histories into present moments of connection and community.

Through home videos we take the fragmentation of identity caused by colonisation and piece ourselves together.
