Project Anveshan: the film


Anveshan is working on a feature-length documentary guided by the question “What is Jainism and how is it relevant today?”.

We have been researching the subject and meeting people from within and outside Jain communities to understand various perspectives on the matter. The film will introduce Jainism, explore the philosophical and social bases of the Jain tradition, and highlight some of the historical impacts of Jainism and of the Jain people. It will then look into Jain principles in the context of the contemporary world.
