Little India Promotional Film 2007

Watching the exhilarating fight sequences that occur when father and son meet, I was left breathless' - Watford Observer

Little India told a tale of love, loss, mischief and mayhem.

Two people meet and quickly fall in love, but one leaves and forgets, while the other is left holding their child. Passionate battles follow in this heart-stopping story of a broken family searching to reconcile their different worlds.

Influenced by South Indian traditions of Kalaripayattu (martial art), Konokol (rhythmic patterns) and mudras (hand gestures), Trestle re-imagined the classical story of Shakuntala for a contemporary time; combining ancient arts with modern words, and inspirational music from India.
