PRIME: Dreams of the conveyor belt
Prime is a collaborative exploration between Athulya Pallip and Manush John around individual agency within larger systems of industry, particularly the meat industry. It unveils itself through short narratives around what comes after the act of killing - in a series of nightmares. 
Prime is an attempt at understanding the transition from a living breathing animal to shrink wrapped, vacuum packed cuts of meat on cold plastic shelves through stories from the floor of a meatpacking factory. It tries to give a voice to the people whose lives are tied to the charnel house ranging from their concerns about the price of meat to inner lives and who's sleeping with whom.
