Summary: ML 05 B 6055 documents the journey of a bazaar bus between the village of Mawjatap in the East Khasi Hills and Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. The film is an assemblage of images and extracts from conversations around the bus with various people. It depicts the intricate linkage that exists between the bus and rural life and livelihoods in Meghalaya and tries to highlight the dependence that people have on the bus in all aspects of their lives. ML 05 B 6055 is, in a sense, a biographical portrait of a bus – how a wooden bus is made, its functionality, systems that exist around it and the associations and attachment that people have for their bus.--Container.
