Documentary Film Screening : Koothu

Koothu, a living theatre tradition from Tamil Nadu, brings to life stories about gods, demigods, kings and demons from Indian epics. During the festival season, many Koothu companies tour the countryside, often commissioned by villages to perform for several consecutive nights. Despite its enduring rural popularity, because of its low-caste associations, Koothu struggles to finds place and patronage in urban art circles. The Film delves into the art, aesthetics and politics surrounding Koothu through the work of two Koothu masters, P. Rajagopal and Sambandan Thambiran.

Director : Ms. Sandhya Kumar | Duration : 53 minutes

Documentary Film Screening - Sanjhi

Sanjhi is a folk tradition of fifteen-day ritual, performed by unmarried girls between full moon day and the dark moonless night to pay tribute to the departed ancestors during pitr paksa. The practice is in vogue in many places in north and central India. Young girls create Sanjhi on wall with cow-dung and a variety of flowers. This is created and recreated with new motifs every evening at the twilight hour and undone in the early dawn. Sandhya Devi is the central myth of this functional tradition. IGNCA has documented this tradition in Udaipur (Rajasthan) and Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) under its research programme.

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.
