APMV is a VR film made to preserve built and cultural heritage of a 400 year old stepwell in Ahmedabad. The VR film takes the perspective of a water diviner who stumbles upon the principle deity of the step well who takes him on a narrative about the origin of stepwells, its role in maintaining balance and femininity



Currently The vav has turned into a dump yard. Its surrounding have been encroached upon and chawls have been built around it. The roof of the vav is used as a bridge by locals living on both sides of the vav using it everyday as a temple at the same time.
