Description

The mysterious and beautiful northeast hill region of India has been all but sealed off from the outside world. The state of Nagaland lies at the eastern extremity of the subcontinent.

Anu offers an experiential insight into the customary way of life of "The Konyak of Nagaland" who were feared as headhunters not so long ago. This exceptional film with its stunning visuals and informative narrative presents images of possibly the last generation of "actual" headhunters.

Anu documents the Konyak living traditions of vibrant festivals, sacrifices feasting and the sacred institutions of kingship and tribal council. She gives an insight into the unique qualities of the Konyak culture like the tradition of headhunting and the cult of fertility.

The highlight of the film is the Konyak annual spring festival, 'Aoling' with all its energy and colour. The Konyak actively re-enact their "glory" days with colourful rituals headhunting dances war chants, animal sacrifices and feasting, which are deeply reminiscent of their rich and vibrant past.
