Scribbles On Akka is a short film on the life and work of the 12th century saint poet, Mahadevi Akka. Her radical poems, written with the female body as a metaphor, have been composed and picturised in contemporary musical language.

Mahadevi, famed as Akka - 'elder sister', while leaving the domestic arena in search of God, also abandoned modesty and clothing. The film explores the meaning of this denial through the work of contemporary artists and writers and testimonies of ordinary folks who nurtured her image through centuries in their folklores and oral literature.
A celebration of rebellion, feminity and legacy down nine hundred years.

The film will be screened on March 8th at 1830 hrs at Goethe Centrum, as part of the International Women’s Day celebrations. For further details, please contact 5552-6443 / 2324-1791.
