Rang Mahal (Palace of Colour) by Prantik Basu

The Santhali tribe from Eastern India till recently had no written script, their stories and myths preserved and passed orally through generations. Each narration would assume a different form, much like the rocks of a nearby hill that come in various hues. The Film is a tale about the origin of creation, exploring the unique relationship of the Santhali people with nature and culture.
