Filmed on Super 16 mm film on location in Kerala, India and New York, this has been one of our most travelled shows since we made it circa 2002. It first aired on Discovery Asia and Latin America and has aired on PBS, among several other channels. The story follows Dr Bhaswati Bhattacharya as she takes us through an exploration of Ayurveda from both an Eastern and Western perspective. It’s one of our more traditional documentary offerings, and timeless as well.
It was a fascinating experience to see cures that work outside of the mainstream. It is the oldest medical system in the world, and yet Ayurveda remains one of the least explored paths even today. Little is understood about it outside of India. The film does not have all the answers, but it does try to give audiences a rare look into this world of healing.
The project was conceived by Galen Yeo; Directed by Christine Lim and Galen Yeo, with cinematography by Robert Chappell and Rajakumar Arevas. Edited by Louis Gumapas. Narration by Rob Middleton (thanks Rob!) Produced by the uber Khim Loh. Consultant: Dr KS Nandalal. Thanks to everyone involved, and EDB Singapore for making this possible. Worldwide TV rights are still available.
