Peacock Plume

A personal documentary celebrating Indian classical dancer Shubhada Varadkar's indomitable spirit. In her biographical account, Shubhada candidly speaks about her relationships, her unwavering alliance with dance, and how she survived cancer with the support of her family, her students, and the only weapon she had: her art. She pays tribute to her Guru Shri Kelucharan Mohapatra as she strives to keep his tradition alive. Weaving a delightful tapestry of Odissi Indian classical dance, the audience is slowly drawn into Shubhada’s challenging life story told in her own words and voice.
