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

Exploring the spiritual cultures of India
12 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Rasa Yatra film demonstrates an original logic of exploring the spiritual cultures of India. Tomanec explores expressions of the divine in all its manifestations and succeeds in wielding together visually divergent imagery into the organic whole of a multi layered poetic experience. Moving from the grand majesty of natural bounty and the meditative practice of the reclusive ascetics to the artistic and formal vibrancy of the Vaishnava experience in Braj, the film maker's vision ties together various strands of spiritual experience, from the formless aesthetic quality, described in Sanskrit as nirguna, to a new form known as saguna, all in a distinctive vocabulary of creative potential of the chosen medium to its fullest. It is such a fresh perspective, delivered masterfully and most importantly - intimately!
