Based on a Kannada folktale translated by AK Ramanujan, “A Flowering Tree” is about Vanaja, a young woman who can magically turn into a flowering tree at will. When her talent results in an unlikely marriage to the prince, Vanaja encounters his sister Kaikeyi, who is envious of her gift. This film uses cut out puppets manipulated by hand, to evoke the rich Indian tradition of oral storytelling. The background score is India’s national instrument, Saraswati Veena rendered by Dr. Jayanthi Kumaresh from her album Mysterious Duality: Just me.
