Journey across tribal art in North East India
Journey across tribal art in North East India documentary by Camille Rolin, its a visual anthropology documentary project based on the study on clothing, arts & crafts, music and dance among several tribes like Apatani, Bodo, Garo, Hmar, Khasi, Kom, Konyak, Mao Naga, Maram Naga, Monpa, Rabha, Tangkhul Naga, Tiwa of states like Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura of North East India.
This project is born from the wish of a personal practise by a student in anthropology and journalism. The documentary will revolve around arts and crafts from north east indian tribes. Art is at the heart of every society and its study seems to be relevant to explain as much as the daily life, as the rituals and beliefs, as symbols also used by the different tribes. Moreover, as art seems to be a tool of conservation of cultures more and more shaken by the mainstream one, the student leading the project would like to give a visual testimony of the rich diversity of arts we can found in this area in order to perpetue the heritage. The different arts studied would be divided in four groups: clothing and jewellery, crafts (pottery, sculpture), music and singing, and dance.
