Shyama

Obhi Chatterjee’s widescreen feature film Shyama brings Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s classic Bengali dance musical to a global audience for the first time. Its pioneering digital distribution strategy uses a Creative Commons licence which allows personal copying and sharing. The film’s dance star Kaberi said: “Shyama may be one of the first films to have a commercially viable business model based on allowing personal copying and having a free online version”.
