“This extraordinary pull or quiet inner urge of the chosen one to abandon the home and immerse oneself in the Maibi culture may seem bizarre, but it is very real. And in this tragic sacrifice lies the sublime art of performance—song and dance attuned to elevate souls beyond the mundane. A chosen one undergoes extraordinary experiences... Perhaps, Manipuri culture is the only culture where a whole philosophy of genesis is propagated purely through the performing arts of Lai Haraoba. This unique aspect of Manipuri culture is the mystical canvas against which the human tragedy of the chosen one plays out.” - Aribam Syam Sharma, Director of ISHANOU Screening in SGIFF's brand new restored classics program, Landmark, ISHANOU returns to Singapore for the first time since it made crucial history in Manipuri cinema back in 1991.
