Shovana by Aparna Sanyal
Padmashri Shovana Narayan brought classical dance into the lives of ordinary people, through over six decades of devotion to her art. As a bureaucrat, guru, researcher, scholar, wife and mother, she has delighted in going against the grain, and living authentically, with an air of purpose that is at once resolute and gentle. The Film brings to the fore the deeply reflective, generous and sensitive artist that lies behind the vivacious public image.
