Résumé

THE TAGORES: A documentary film based on European-Indian cultural voyage

Part 1: The „Indian Prince“ Dwarkanath Tagore and Queen Victoria
Part 2: The „Indian Goethe“ Rabindranath Tagore in Germany

The two-part documentary (2 x 45 Min.) depicts the touching journey of an Indian family living in Europe since 40 years - a journey tracing the footsteps of their renowned forefathers: The Tagores. It will highlight the culture-historical importance of the Tagores in the context of European-Indian relations. The occasion for this documentary is to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary (7th May 2011) as well as the 70th death anniversary (7th August 2011) of the first Asian Nobel Prize laureate Rabindranath Tagore. The Tagores were modern mentors and national heros of ancient India. They are considered to be the most successful family from the state of Bengal (nowadays divided into West Bengal, India and Bangladesh) in the last 300 years. The Tagores, who were unusually progressive, open minded and widely travelled family, gave birth to many artists, poets, musicians, philosophers as well as businessmen, social-, cultural- and religious reformers of international repute. As early as in the 18th century they supported reform movements in India and protested against child marriage and burning of widows.
