Navatman’s largest project of the decade – a 2 hour dance theater feature film retelling the largest epic in the world, The Mahabharata. This film is the first of a three part series, combining Kathak, Bharatanatyam, Carnatic & Hindustani music, and uses spoken word in English combined with theater storytelling traditions from India. This is a closed in-person premiere but the movie will be streamed online from November 20th, get tickets here!

This film is:

– the first feature film told from the narrative of Indian classical dance and music traditions

– the first American/Indian diaspora film interpretation of the Mahabharata

– the first feature film of the Mahabharata written solely by female scriptwriters

– a feature film that switches gender roles as actors and actresses

This film is our way to create impact in the world around us: a story that is driven by sounds and images that are not an attempt to assimilate, a story driven to help create cultural understanding for the next generation of South Asians.
