COME NEXT WEDNESDAY TO DOUBLE DOUBLE LAND FOR A SPECIAL SCREENING PUT TOGETHER BY: TERESA AVERSA AND DAVID FM HANES!
WE ARE PLANNING ON SCREENING A NUMBER OF SELECTED EPISODES FROM THE HINDI-TV EPIC "MAHABHARAT"!!!
YOU SHOULD COME!!!
Mahabharat was a widely popular Indian television series based on the ancient Indian epic Mahabharata, an ancient Indian sanskrit which narrates theKurukshetra War. The 94-episode series originally ran from 2 October 1988 to 24 June 1990 and was produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by his son, Ravi Chopra. Viewed by over 5+ million viewers, this will be the first time it is publicly screened in Toronto outside of the Hindi community.
The idea to form this event was sparked during Teresa’s trip to Mumbai, in which she came across the soap opera while flipping through TV channels and became enthralled with the vintage video graphics and excessive theatricality of the production. Having introduced it to David on her return home - they decided it needed to be shown to their peers, in hopes of further distributing the excitement. This epic soap opera is a sensory overload of early computer graphics and includes an amazing musical score - you will surely not be disappointed.
We hope you can join us.
- Teresa & David
