Miilelam Miiyoh (A Season of Change), 2017

"Deep into the forests in and around Fakim Wildlife Sanctuary, where the Indian state of Nagaland shares its border with Myanmar, lives the Yimchunger tribe. The protagonists, Shetsulam and Pensokiu, offer insights into the bond they share with their immediate environment – the forests, rivers and wildlife. Even as the community tries to domesticate the mithuns (an animal endemic to northeast India) by redefining their boundaries, the film is an attempt to capture a perceptive account of the changes in their relationship with nature."
