Ashwatthama

Ashwatthama

The Mahabharata’s Ashwatthama is the last story nine-year old Ishvaku is told by his mother before she dies. Sent to his uncle’s house, just like Ashwatthama, he begins roaming the country-side, Filmed in black and white with sparks of colour, this is an intensely beautiful and beguiling exploration of the intersections of legend, folk traditions, rituals and reality in an Indian village.
