Phad – A Maharashtrian Folk Art
Director: Dhananjay Khairnar
The documentary “Phad” is based on the great folk tradition of Maharashtra known as “Tamasha” and on the life of its artists. These artists were born on-stage, brought up on stage and have carried forward the baton inherited from their parents and grandparents, selflessly. This art, that can be traced back to nearly 250-300 years, and its artists are still living the lives of the illiterate and the abandoned for generations together.
