The legend of Annapurna, Hindu goddess of nourishment | Antara Raychaudhuri and Iseult Gillespie

published 1 month ago

Historically, the union between Shiva and Parvati was a glorious one: a sacred combination which brought fertility and connection to all living things. Yet a rift had grown between these two forces. Setting out to prove the importance of her work, Parvati withdrew from the world and sent the Earth into darkness. Antara Raychaudhuri and Iseult Gillespie tell the story of the goddess Annapurna. [Directed by Roxane Campoy, narrated by Susan Zimmerman, music by Stéphane Gassot].
