See video
Multilingual, 51 min, 1996, India

The film is based on the rehearsals of a bilingual play 'Gita - An Imagery', directed by H. Kanhaialal. The play, based on the Mahabharata war, in Tamil and Manipuri, portrays Arjuna, the protagonist in a dilemma - morality or duty. The filmmaker compares the struggle of Arjuna in the war, with that of the actors and the director of the play, struggling to seek an expression in regional language theatre. The rehearsals become performance.
