RASA YATRA - a film by Param Tomanec
Update: The European Premiere of Rasa Yatra will be held in Prague. It will open the 10th Indian Film Festival on 15th October, 6:30PM in Kino Svetozor.
RASA YATRA is a film by Param Tomanec, (50mins) photographed in India inspired by Baraka and Qatsi series.
"RASA YATRA evokes the beauty of pilgrimage and explores the essence of devotion in Hindu culture through non-linear narrative. Rasa is Sanskrit for 'juice' or 'taste', and it can also mean 'dance'. Yatra means 'journey', suggesting a joyful inner expedition, beyond the confines of routine and conceptual conventions. Photographed over a period of four years, RASA YATRA takes the viewer on a meditative journey from the majestic Himalayan mountains into Vrindavana, the spiritual heart of India. For the receptive viewer, RASA YATRA becomes a pilgrimage rather than a mere depiction of one."
Godfrey Reggio personally reviewed the film and he offered encouraging filmmaker's support in the stages of the final edit.
