We explore our world through our films, which bear our unique cinematic style.
They are expressions of our independent views, which have been critical,
often against the conventions. Yet we’ve found support from some
prominent international channels and funding agencies.
We’ve pitched our project in the prestigious IDFA Forum.
Our creations have always been well accepted and
appreciated by a wide cross section of audience.
Our films have received wide recognitions in
some front ranking film festivals of the world.
However difficult, we’ve been trying to make
our independent ventures self-sustaining.

SYNOPSIS
A study of five fundamental elements of Nature; Earth, Water, Energy, Air and Emptiness. Shot in the remote snowcapped mountains of Himalayas in Sikkim, the film portrays the ‘Laws of Nature’ by observing the cycles and rhythms in which these elements and forces are created, destroyed and change forms. Devoid of any speech, a visual narration through Lyrical Images is woven together in a Symphony of Sound and Silence.
