Centralia exposes hidden crimes of war as an indigenous people fight for their survival. In war, truth is the first casualty and Centralia explores the unsteady relationship between reality and fiction and how our perceptions of reality and truth are manipulated.

Combining tropes of documentary and fiction, art historian Emilia Terracciano, writing in 1000words magazine, has called Centralia a hallucinatory reflection where an invisible conflict between a guerilla army, an indigenous people and the Indian state is associated with wider issues of environmental degradation. Such exploitation comes at a price: the transmogrification of violence into the de-facto language of politics. The voice of resistance is buried by alternate facts. Freedom is shrinking and what we say and who we are is being obscured.
