COME TO MY COUNTRY: JOURNEYS WITH KABIR AND FRIENDS
India, 98 minutes
Director: Shabnam Virmani
A journey in search of the des or country invoked in the writings of Kabir, the 15th century mystic poet of north India, this film interweaves the stories of two people from two very different backgrounds – Indian folk singer Prahlad Tippanya and North American scholar Linda Hess. Where is Kabir’s country? The answer is elusive in the journey through song and poem into these two lives, brought together in an unlikely friendship by the cross-cultural resonance of Kabir.
The screening will be held at The National Gallery of Modern Art,
# 49, Palace Road, Bangalore-560 052
