Kim Dambæk, Denmark, 2002


Thala is an exceptionally interesting documentary about the Hindu dance form Kathakali, which is practiced in Kerala, India. Kim Dambæk¿s ever attentive camera captures fascinating glimpses of daily life and has the Kathakali dancer, Prakash, explain philosophically about the rhythms of the dance as a universal means of communication and a way of achieving harmony with cosmos - and thereby Thala becomes a rare exotic and spiritual experience
