16mm Wednesdays: The Sword and the Flute

16mm Wednesdays: The Sword and the Flute

It's almost Dwalli! We're celebrating early with this short documentary about Indian art!

The Sword and the Flute Uses Indian music and Moghul and Rajput miniature paintings in presenting four facets in the the thinking of India: the courtly life during the reign of the Turkoman Muslim conqueror Emperor Akbar; the saintly life of the yogin and the respect shown the true ascetic; the spiritual meaning of romantic love between man and woman; and the adored divine bridegroom, which is one of the symbols as represented by the Lord Krishna.

Stop by the MMB screening room, this event is open and no RSVP is required!
