Mau: The Spirit Dreams of Cheraw is a performance documentary film from Mizoram, through Cheraw (Bamboo dance)and ritual folklore, revealing the forgotten memory of the story of the mother who dies at childbirth. The film shows a re-imagined dance of the mother spirit. Bamboo Dance was performed as a way to pacify the soul of the mother who died in childbirth. Bamboo is part of the geo-political history of Mizoram and the many other states in the North-east of India.Hence the loss of this intergenerational maternal memory is the crisis of climate and the culture of a place. This film is part of a series of upcoming films about human and non-human relationships in North-East India at the backdrop of the crisis of climate.
