APMV is a VR film made to preserve built and cultural heritage of a 400 year old stepwell called Ashapura Mata ni vav (APMV) in Ahmedabad.
The VR film takes the perspective of a water diviner who stumbles upon the principle deity of the step well who takes him on a narrative about the origin of stepwells, its role in maintaining balance and femininity.
We made this film as an outcome of a co-creative crash-process bringing together the group's interests and focusing on our each other's stronger skills, with a larger goal to create a memorable experience that takes a physical entity from the city to give it a dreamer twist.
