Synopsis: Two men of very different personalities make a quarrelsome journey across the vast subcontinent of India in quest of very separate destinies. Along the way, young Rakesh and Vasant, the former Royal Engineers, experience a host of bizarre and memorable encounters; with the giant wood-constructed god Jagannath carving a swath of destruction, with the Pragmatic Monks who live in a carved-out mountain to perform their miracles of meditation, with demon cranes who reduce life to counting, with six-armed goondas, the destroyer Shiva and the legendary Baboon Warrior.From this cinematic dreamscape filled with animated machines, airships of silk and ancient legends brought to life, Jan Lars Jensen conjures up an amazing and innovative fantasy.

Review: In an alternative world where gods are as self-evident as thunderstorms and as destructive as tornadoes, a Baboon Warrior surfaces to save India from marauding behemoths; yet a driven Hindu named Rakesh mysteriously wants him dead. In Shiva 3000, Jan Lars Jensen has cooked up an exotic curry of wonders drawing on Hindu mythology and Buddhist meditative practices. From the sensual antics of Kama Sutrans to Zen-like archery, we sail along in an adventure that is a cross between the Ramayana and Jurassic Park. Belief in gods is beyond doubt, and yet something in the pantheon is amiss. The giant Jagannath turns out to be constructed from planks and pulleys, and a splinter group of Buddhists secretly dissects human bodies in their mountain fortress. Jensen keeps us guessing how it all ties together until the ending reveals Shiva 3000 as an allegory of our own times that is as devastating as it is absorbing. --Brian Bruya
