Indian Summer director Sirish Rao explores ten centuries of human imagination (VIDEO)


“Societies most interesting stories are in its ephemera” Sirish Rao, the director of the Indian Summer Festival, brilliantly uses Indian baby posters to share his story.

Indian Summer Festival takes on this massive theme of ‘mythmaking,’ examining ten centuries of human imagination and storytelling.

This ‘festival for a curious mind’ presents a continent-spanning range of artists, from the inheritors of ancient oral storytelling traditions to genre-defying musicians, award-winning novelists, and provocative visual, performance and culinary artists.
