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.

Documentary Screening - The Journey of Bhikkunis

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.

Documentary Screening - Brhadisvara Temple Thanjavur - Mahakumbha Abhishekam

Thanjavur, Bṛhadīśvara Temple was built of granite by Rājarāja Coḷa (CE 995–1010) to honour Śiva as Adavallan – an accomplished dancer with his various manifestations. It has a central shrine 150 ft square, a Vimāna 200 ft high, a huge inner courtyard 250 X 500 ft, wall paintings done under Nāyakas, and 108 dance poses of Śiva.

The temple is sanctified periodically at a twelve-year interval, by a celebration of Mahākumbhābhiṣekam. The film records rare footage of all the stages of abhiṣekam starting from saṁkalpa to the pouring of sacred water from the top of the temple. This rare documentation records one of the greatest orality and ritualistic heritage.
