Life of Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948

Posted on July 22, 2007. Filed under: Documentaries, Educational |

This is a 5 hrs. 10 min. documentary biography of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, known famously as Mahatma. All events and principles of Gandhi’s life and thought are viewed as integrated parts of his truth-intoxicated life depicting permanent and universal values. The purpose of the film is to let know the present and the future generations “that such a man as Gandhi in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”, to acquaint them with his life and work and to spread his message of peace and universal brotherhood to the war-weary and fear-stricken world.

The film brings together a mass of visual record not only of 78-year life of Gandhi but also of an important period of India’s history. The aim of the film being education and not entertainment, there is no attempt at dramatization of those exciting times. The story is told with an eye to truthful documentation of the main events within the limits of available documentary visual material.

Vaastu Marabu

Posted on June 8, 2007. Filed under: Arts, Documentaries, Videos |

The Vishwakarmas, the holders of the architectural and artistic heritage in India, have maintained the skill and the theoretical basis essential for designing and executing almost all aspects of the man-made environment. Vaastu Marabu documents the theory and practice of the Vaastu tradition of Indian art, architecture, craft and design. One of the foremost shilpis (designer-builder-sculpter) of India, Shri. V. Ganapati Sthapati of Mammallapuram, meditates on his art and his occupation. The film shows the process of making stone idols at Mammallapuram, near Madras, of casting bronzes in Kumbakonam, and of building stone temples at Kamudhi, near Madurai and at Ratnagiri, near Vellore. It illustrates the continuity of the tradition and reveals a technology that is ancient, yet still relevant today. The film explores the process of translating inner experience into art, and invites us to experience the naked beauty of the form while understanding the metaphysical message. The art of the Vishwakarma has given form and expression to all denominations of metaphysical thought in India. While it documents the practical aspects of building a temple or making an idol, the film also probes the underlying scientific and mathematical principles. Temple design is explored, and the meaning of symbols and iconsare examined from the point of view of a shilpi.

Painter Singers – The Patua Craft

Posted on June 6, 2007. Filed under: Arts, Documentaries, Videos |

For generations, Patua (Chitrakar) communities of West Bengal, India have been painters and singers of stories depicted in scrolls. The Patuas tell the stories of Muslim saints (pirs and fakirs) as well as Hindu Gods and Goddesses, and offer devotion to saints at Muslim shrines. In the past they used to wander from village to village, receiving rice, vegetables and coins for their recital. They would unroll a scroll, a frame at a time, and sing their own compositions. But competition from other media eroded this way of life and now the Patuas are trying to adapt to changing conditions.
