“Lama Dances of Sikkim” bags Special Jury Award at the National Awards

GANGTOK, June 10: The exquisite documentary film on Sikkimese Buddhism, “Lama Dances of Sikkim” has bagged the Special Jury Award in the non-feature category today, the Union Ministry of Information & Broadcasting announced in New Delhi.
The film, directed by renowned documentary maker Manas Bhowmik and researched and scripted by former editor of the erstwhile Weekend Review¸ Sujit Chakraborty, has been given the Special Jury award for all documentaries made in the country in 2006.
Yishey D, currently working with SIKKIM EXPRESS was the assistant researcher in the award winning documentary film.
The producer, Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre, now headed by Anuradha Mookerjee, who herself commissioned the film, and the director, Bhowmik will receive Rs 50,000 each as cash reward for this.
The film was shot entirely in Sikkim on a paltry budget of less than Rs four lakh, and covers three dances: the Pang Lhabsol, the original Sikkimese dance festival to honour Mount Khangchendzonga; the Gutor Chaam, and the two-day masked dance festival Guru Dragmar. The film was shot in the Pemayangtse and Phodong monasteries.
Last year, the film had bagged the Best Documentary award from the Bengal Film Critics Association.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
