Spaces As Represented
The perception of a Cinema City is embedded in its representations in popular narratives and the repetition of it. Often the inhabitants of those spaces too perceive their own cities through the representations and not by the lived experience.
“I went there a year back…to Town, Gateway of India, Nariman Point. I could recognize everything from the movies. I told my children that see this is the road, this is the water from the films that I have seen.” — Sushila
