Storyline

RASA YATRA evokes the beauty of pilgrimage and explores the essence of devotion in Hindu culture through non-linear narrative. Rasa is Sanskrit for "juice" or "taste". Yatra means "journey", suggesting a joyful inner expedition, beyond the confines of routine and conceptual conventions. Photographed over a period of four years, RASA YATRA takes the audience on a meditative journey from the majestic Himalayan mountains into Vrindavana, the spiritual heart of India. For the receptive viewer, RASA YATRA becomes a pilgrimage rather than a mere depiction of one. Written by Kenneth R. Valpey

Swept Away
16 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film was indeed a deeply moving journey through a time of intimate connection with the earth, to a dimension so far and distant from our natural place in the world. I felt this film to be rich with visual feasts. At once very startling and powerful in its message, whilst on the other hand meditative, serene and calming. It feels like a personal experience that simply takes your breath away. You feel the inner cry of nature and the innocence of people who live in harmony with her, followed by contrasts of opposing forces. This film contains some of the most soul stirring messages, vivid images and leaves an indelible impression on the mind. A artistic masterpiece.
