About “Priya and the Twirling Wind”
Priya, India’s first female superhero, has to protect her enchanted forest from greedy industrialists threatening to cut down all the trees. With the help of a little girl named Somya and the local villagers, they defend their home — reminiscent of India’s Chipko movement. Priya shows Somya, who is suffering from asthma due to the toxic haze, the beauty of her forest and its power to heal Mother Earth and her.
The short film brings Somya’s story to life through the magic of puppets and animation by renowned puppeteer Raven Kaliana, and the voices of Shubhra Prakash, Dipti Mehta, Amaya Joshi, and Vick Krishna. Scan the pages with the augmented reality app to see fun animation, AR puppets, stories, and interviews. The project was funded through a grant from the U.S. Embassy New Delhi.
