Screening & Interaction | Vince Costa | 6 Assagao, 7.30 pm, 17th June 2019


Saxtticho Koddo – The Granary of Salcete | This ethnographic film journeys through Curtorim’s agrarian roots, in an effort to go beyond rice as a staple, and explore how it is interwoven so intricately into the Goan identity.

Located in a valley, on the banks of the river Zuari is the village
of Curtorim in Salcete, a sub-district of Southern Goa. Through the ages, this village has been synonymous with the vast production of rice, thereby earning it the title of “Saxtticho Koddo” or “The Granary of Salcete”.

Director Vince Costa will screen and talk to us about the film and explore the agrarian roots that is interwoven so intricately into the Goan identity and will inspect the various socio-economic and environmental dynamics, that now affect contemporary farming in Goa today.

Patrons are requested to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time. Please donate to keep these programs alive and sharp, at the venue or online here- #goanarratives #thusgoa
