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.

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.

Documentary Screening - Saat Sur

The film explores the great acoustic and mythological heritage of nāda through the diverse uses of raga and tala in gharana traditions, including the oldest Gwalior and the Qawwal Bachha Gharana. It investigates the orality of the Gharanas and the broad punctuations of their renderings. It traces the Khayal from the standpoint of Amir Khusro who, in the 13th- 14th Century, combined Persian airs with Indian Ragas. It incorporates sound bytes to explain Gharana perspectives and elaborate Khayal renderings of great musical maestros. It offers a glimpse of the diverse accents of the schools of India music on sharpness or ruggedness, or sweetness and tonal graces, on laya or swara.

The film features the empowerment of Buddhist nuns who came from Tibet. It records how nunnery came into existence by toiling through time and following His Holiness Dalai Lama’s vision: “Fundamental to every world religion is the belief that we must reduce own selfishness to serve others”. Nunnery which came into existence in twelfth century underwent many changes. The film documents how nuns went about recreating nunnery with multiple efforts after escaping from Tibet. With new education apart from spiritual training, they led the life as health workers, teachers, artists, which the film documents.
