About this title


Filmed on location, 4 beloved stories of India, Indonesia, Korea & Japan are told through the masterpieces of visual art & the stirring performances these tales have inspired for centuries. The Ramayana, the epic adventures of India's legendary hero, are illustrated with Indian paintings, Indonesian sculpture, Javanese shadow play & dramatic enactments. In the Korean Masked Dance Drama, told by actors wearing audaciously conceived masks, social satire is masked by bold humor & comic dance. Gita Govinda, India's great erotic poem is interpreted by a beautiful dancer & celebrated in lyrical painted images. The Tale of Genji, the amorous adventures of Prince Genji are told by a Japanesae woman in period costume, as colorful paintings from scrolls & screens illustrate Japan's most famous romantic novel.
