About the film:
*We set out to document a seven-day festival that was held in the hamlet
of Naluna in the Garhwal Himalaya, India, in November 2009. The festival
centred on the sacred text of the Bhagavatapurana which tells the story
of the beloved Indian deity, Krishna. The festival was conducted under
the auspices of the local village deity Kandar. Our film captures the
sights and sounds of this beautiful mountain community, as well as the
fascinating interaction between the story-telling tradition from the
North Indian plain, and Kandar, the village god.
My cameraman and editor Julian Dennis and I have worked long and hard on
this film, and we look forward to reading your feedback on Youtube.
Please circulate this message as widely as possible.
With thanks in advance
