When I think of Kerala, images of the early years of my life as filmmaker-anthropologist come to my mind. In the 70s and early 80s of last century my relationship with India was concentrated on Kerala. Spread over frequent visits I must have stayed there at least one year if not more. And although I have been back to Kerala briefly in between, my visit in 2014 was like revisiting part of my own past.

Walking around in familiar places; meeting old friends, now, like myself, well past retirement age; noticing changes and things unchanged in the appearance of cities, towns, villages, landscapes; merging new impressions and memories of the past into series of layered images in my mind.
Kerala, My Own Country.
