Migration as a term, has always been associated with either hope or helplessness. When one moves to a city in search of work, it is either with the hope that they’ll make it for their family, or with the helplessness of not being able to do anything back at home for themselves. ‘Bhojpuri Bambaiwale’, a film by Aayush C, Jyoti N, Mayura C, Yamini N, and Yaniam C, is an attempt to explore migration through the eyes of Migrants from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, and the effect that Bhojpuri cinema has on them when they are miles away from their homes. It explores how impactful cinema is when it comes to connecting people to their lives back home and through the eyes of our subjects, as well as through scenes from different Bhojpuri films.
