TITLE: YASHODHARA THE BUDDHA’S WIFE
TYPE: NARRATIVE SHORT FILM  (+ in future A FEATURE, A Episodic Series – 3 seasons)
STATUS: Short film ready for release. OFFICIAL SELECTION FOR QUEENS WORLD FILM FESTIVAL 2022 NEW YORK – USA
OPEN FOR: ALL RIGHTS. ALL TERRITORIES
LANGUAGE: ENGLISH + HINDI + DUB RIGHTS
Synopsis: What do we know of the wife and child the Buddha abandoned on the night of his childbirth when he went off to seek his enlightenment? Yashodhara – The Buddha’s Wife brings this intimate, intense, and rarely told fascinating story to the forefront, offering a nuanced portrait of this compelling and compassionate figure. Witness her alternative journey to spiritual enlightenment. Yashodhara is sitting in meditation as usual but today is different, it has been 12 years and she has come a long way in overcoming the truth of her husband ‘the buddha’ leaving suddenly in the middle of the night of their childbirth with no intimation and no indication… Today a flood of memories grip her, something is happening and she is reminded to be reaffirmed in her resolve. Today is the day when he returns! A long pending healing conversation between the now enlightened Buddha and his wife takes place as he remembers he owes her this wisdom that he has discovered in solitude and away from home and what transpires is a heightened sense of oneness as he discovers she knows already what he knows and she did not have to abandon anything or leave the palace to get there. They both suffered in their own right and today is the healing that happens for both of them. They both walked the same path, and although they went different routes they ended up at the exact same destination. Wasn’t suffering then a… gift? Tagline: Suffering can be the biggest portal to enlightening.

TITLE: Exhale – A documentary on Myofascial Massage
TYPE: Documentary
STATUS: READY FOR RELEASE
OPEN FOR: ALL RIGHTS. ALL TERRITORIES
LANGUAGE: ENGLISH + DUB RIGHTS
Synopsis:

What does myofascial massage do?

Myofascial (my-o-FASH-e-ul) release is a manual therapy technique often used in massage. The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles… but it is only PHYSICAL?

What is the difference between myofascial release and massage?

This film shows that this particular massage therapy involves steady movement, like kneading and stroking, on the muscles to bring relief; myofascial release uses sustained pressure to stretch and lengthen the fascia, and then it shows the energetic principals of elements that come to play a role in the over all process of healing.

What does fascia release feel like?

It is not just physical, most times it is deep-seated emotions, traumas, suppressions, and fears and they all come to the surface ready to be released when we are ready to do so! Sometimes just a touch can inform the wound that its time, it has served its purpose, the guidance has been received and it’s time now for it to be replaced with a new vibrant feeling of forwarding life which is now healed.

Many such questions ran into my head and I tried to find answers to some of them via this short film
