Bodhvriska - The Tree of Wisdom

India (MIFF 1987)

Director: Rajan Khosa

This fictional narrative reflects, through an inner dramaturgy of gestures and rooms, a mother/daughter relationship. Through its archetypal iconography, it discreetly provokes debate about the Indian problem of self-denial.
