A reflexive essay film shot on a beach in Goa, SNAPSHOTS is a work of political and social commentary that deconstructs the very nature of the documentary film genre. Through stylized tableaux that portray locals and tourists, it observes the relationship between the West and the East while examining the dynamic that exists between the filmmaker, the camera, the subjects being filmed and the spectator.
