From 2003 to 2005 he produced, filmed and edited a documentary feature, 'Kotla Walks, performing locality.' The film engages with metropolitan meanings in India through wandering the streets, footpaths, courtyards, bedrooms and sitting rooms of the urban village of Kotla Mubarakpur. Through focusing on the family of Sarita and Raman Bhardwaj, their friends, and, neighbours, it explores the ways in which the texture of urban spaces in woven into ideas of belonging, intimacy, friendship, ambition, and the desire to be here but also somewhere else. In the process, it constitutes locality as a series of performances.
In 2012 he completed 'Sisters of the Sun' a film about the flows of time, language and culture on the volcanic plains of Western Victoria
'Reawakenings', a documentary about the reclamation and revival of the South Western Victorian Aboriginal languages.
