SRI AUROBINDO: A NEW DAWN | AN ANIMATION FILM | OFFICIAL TRAILER LAUNCH
A Sri Aurobindo Society Production
It is with great joy that I am sharing with you all the official trailer of a very inspirational animation film in the making, of an extra-ordinary freedom fighter, yogi and seer – Sri Aurobindo. The full film will be launched next year, 15th Aug. 2022, the 150th birth anniversary of Sri Aurobindo.
The idea was born out of AuroYouth, the youth wing of Sri Aurobindo Society, in December 2020, and an immediate offering of collaboration came from Manoj of Auroville. We quickly put together a team and were very fortunate to see the country’s leading animation film studio – Studio Eeksaurus, Mumbai, lead by the very aspiring & talented Suresh Eriyat - joining our team to make this happen.
It was sheer Grace that bore us through the last 8 months, through a testing ‘second wave’ of the Covid-19, and the difficulties in raising the finances for the production of the Trailer. The result is now in front of you all.
The film will depict Sri Aurobindo’s role in India’s freedom and its re-awakening, marking a new dawn in the history of India. It will portray the period of his life from when he returned to India after his education in England (1893) to the eventful meeting of the Mother with him (1914). Every frame of the film will be hand-painted digitally by a group of highly skilled artists, aspiring to make this film into a piece of timeless art.
The Trailer takes you visually to the moment when amidst the grim situation prevalent in India, Sri Aurobindo, returning from England, sets his foot on the port of Apollo Bunder, Bombay. And Mother India welcomes him with a deeply spiritual experience! From this moment on, the destiny of India changed, a new future began to take shape.
The team hopes that you enjoy every scene of the Trailer which captures the symbolic reality of this epochal moment. Watch it, and share it with all your friends, and help us raise funds to make this Film possible.
