The Mahabharata

Peter Brook Series

Filmoteca de Catalunya 03/07

Coinciding with the presentation of the show Tempest project, directed by Peter Brook, at the 2021 Grec Festival de Barcelona, the Filmoteca is devoting a series to this director’s film projects.

The Pandavas and the Kauravas are two rival castes divided by age-old hatred and jealousy. The Kauravas fear that one of the Pandavas will take the King of Hastinapura’s place on his death. When the god Krishna predicts that a Pandava will indeed reign, both sides start getting ready to go to war. An abridged film version of the play based on sacred Indian texts that turned Peter Brook into a film legend and that was screened at the Mercat de les Flors in 1985.
