KERALA THE CRADLE OF CHRISTIANITY IN SOUTH ASIA
Film (English / 34 minutes) DVD - PAL/NTSC
Nominated for best foreign documentary award, Queens Film Festival 2009. The film explores the beginning of Christianity in this part of the world. The narrative follows the events that led to the introduction of the Chaldean, Antiochene, Roman Catholic, Anglican, and other liturgies along with the musical styles associated with them. The film documents excerpts from the current practice of chants in East Syriac, West Syriac, Latin, Sanskrit, English, and Malayalam. Drawing attention to the lesser known aspects of the religious, musical, and linguistic complexity of the region, the film presents Kerala as a potential field for inquiries in an emerging area of scholarship on Christian music in India. A stunning visual and au treat.
