Institute History

  • 2013 Mumbai Mantra | Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab


The film "Tribhanga" is a story of three women, from the same family, of three different generations. The lives of these three women overlap each other’s like concentric circles . . . each determining the shape of the other . . . each contributing to the other’s life in a very deep manner . .  . each becoming the other’s strength in key times in their life. Their lives are like ‘Tribhanga,’ the Odissi dance pose that is so disjointed, yet so beautiful, magical and mesmerising.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
