Framing 92 (2013), twenty years on, the film explores some of the ways in which the '92 riots in Bombay have been and continue to be represented - in the realms of art and photojournalism. It weaves in and out of the narratives of its three protagonists - a painter and two photojournalists - and is interspersed with glimpses of their work. In doing this, the film attempts to understand the nuances of capturing the riots through different visual media. In the process, it also reflects on the memories of those who captured the riots for posterity and more. The city archived through the works of these artists has metamorphosed over the years, shaking the bedrock of cosmopolitanism on which it was built. Bombay has moved on to being Mumbai, but the indelible scars of the riots linger on unseen.
