Documentary Screening - Kadka

Kadka originally were battle songs describing the valour of warriors. But, over the centuries, it became the song of prayer in the Sufi school of thought, especially in the Dargah of Garib Nawazor Khwaja Mohin-ud-din Chisti, at Ajmer. The concept revolves around winning the battle over the evil body and the salvation of soul. Qawwals sing these songs every evening and enthuse the atmosphere of spiritual vision. This documentary focuses on the Sufi song tradition, which is regularly sung in the Garib Nawaz Dargah of Ajmer.

Documentary Film Screening - Behind the Mask - Episode 1

The film tries to decipher the Vaishnava, Buddhist monastic and the oral community traditions behind masks. Masks have been used to mediate between the self and the other, life and death, prototypes and archetypes; to individuate the collective; and, to effect semiotic, metempsychotic, theatrical transformation in personal identities. The film presents the social, theological and iconographical contexts of masks in Northeast India.
