Film: Krishnanattam

The dance drama Krishnanattam is based on the highly acclaimed poetic work Krishnageeti, written in 1653 CE, that describes the life of Lord Krishna. This documentary gives an insight into the performance practice of this dance drama in the famous Krishna temple of Guruvayoor. It also presents the richness of the spectacular Indian dance theatre form of Kathakali.
