COW - Community Owned Wifimesh, a year in review post pandemic. Durgadahalli village in south India is at the heart of Janastu's rural research lab. It is set in a picturesque little valley where Connecting the Unconnected learning grant members Girish and Shalini coordinate development and deployment of community radio activities. Young women "express themselves", edit and share narratives over a Wi-Fi mesh network. Panning through connections between Raspberry Pi, radio and Wi-Fi mesh, the film briefly discusses unintended consequences of such initiatives and introduces ongoing work post pandemic.
