Hindu/Garhwali with English subtitles
(Spanish, French and Dutch subtitles also available)
When Saraswati arrives as the first educated daughter-in-law in a Himalayan village, she wonders how she will ever feel at home. But faced with the skepticism of an older generation of women, she grows determined to succeed. As the village’s 9-day Pandav Lila festival approaches, the film offers a window onto the daily work and spiritual practices that bind people to each other and the land even as life is transforming. Spirit is an intimate story of longing and belonging from a community in the thralls of change.
