Film screening of Mahakumbha - In Search of the Nector

Film screening of Mahakumbha – In Search of the Nector
Director: Bappa Ray Duration: 48 minutes

Prayag is the place of the confluence of sacred waters. Pilgrimage to this place is equated with three million ten thousand pilgrimages. Mahakumbha, which takes place once in twelve years, is the subject of the film covering the Mahakumbha of 2001. It explores the vast orality of an internal agnihotra. The fire of tapas (penance) burns retas or soma (semen fluid) in the body of the human being, purges it of poisonous lust and turns it into the healing nectar of energy. The process is equated with the cycle of waters, incited in the universe by the solar fire. The devotee substitutes a new, clean self for his old self through his ablution in the Mahakumbha.

Film screening of Wangla - A Garo Festival

Director: Bappa Ray
Duration: 52 minutes 27 seconds

The lineage of the Garo people of Western Meghalaya goes back to Tibet. The Garo hills are interspersed with patches of low-lying plains bordering Assam and Bangladesh. The life of Garos revolves around the Sun God, who rules their Jhum or shifting cultivation, and envelops the dynamics of their life ways. The Wangla festival of the Garos is the time for celebrating the bounty and well being, bestowed by Sun God. It is the time to rejoice; time to choose the bride and the Groom; and the time for young persons to mingle freely. The films place the life and times of Garos in the background of their traditional philosophy and belief systems, and provides a mirror to the Garo mindscape.

Screening of the film Circus

Theatre actors and circus artists come together to make this brilliant production under the directorial gaze of Abhilash Pillai. Twenty-six students from the National School of Drama, combine with nineteen artistes from Grand Circus along with an elephant and a horse appear on stage, the circus ring, for the maiden show of ‘Clowns and Clouds’, based on tales from the Panchatantra, from Kalidas’ Meghadoot, and a Chinese fable Shwa-Shwa. Joker acts in between are supported by innovative masks, costumes, specially created music and dance. For the actor/student it was a challenge to perform in front of an audience of three thousand odd people circled from all sides. For the circus performer the challenge was to stick to a story. For the rest of us, the audience, a visual never seen before. IGNCA in collaboration with National School of Drama had hosted three days of Circus at IGNCA in 2013. The entire performance was documented by NSD. A film based on this documentation has now been made by well known film maker Shri Sanjay Mahirshi.
Shri Mahirshi will be available for Q & A session.
