1. The Story of the Peacock from the Pardhan Gonds of Madhya Pradesh

When Bara Dev created the peacock he first made all the parts the head, feathers, tail, legs and crown separately. The Lapwing decided that she would take the legs for herself. This film was developed by Gond artists and students of the National Institute of Design (www.nid.edu) in 2012. The production was completed in 2015.

2. Man Tiger Spirit from the Angami tribe of Nagaland

Spirit, Tiger and Man are three brothers born from a union between sky and earth. The three were unable to live together in harmony, and Man used his cunning to outwit Tiger, forcing him to live in the jungle. Man is separated from Spirit but becomes an important chief who remembers his dependence on nature.

Man Tiger Spirit was completed in 2011 with support from the Government of Nagaland. The film was premiered at the Hornbill Festival
2011.
