By NewsDesk • Published on August 13, 2012

Songs of Mashangva, the national award winning film produced and directed by Oinam Doren will compete in the 18th edition of the Lessinia Film Festival.

The festival will be held in Bosco Chiesanuova, Italy from August 18 – 26, 2012.

Songs of Mashangva won the 58th National Award for Best Ethnographic Film in the non-feature film category.

The film is in Tangkhul, Manipuri & English languages. It traces the music of the Tangkhul Naga and its return to the modern age: as Naga Folk Blues. The protagonist Rewben Mashangva travels through the villages of the Tangkhul Naga to talk to the old people and collect songs and instruments. The rhythms, melodies and lyrics help form his own music, which he describes as Naga Folk Blues.

It was shot for more than one and half years in Rajasthan, Nagaland, Kolkatta, Shillong, Imphal and other villages of Manipur.
