About

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers

How do you tell a story when its words are a song, a stone, an image, a symbol? A story that is woven into a shawl, woven through time itself?

Tsungkotepsu is a shawl worn by men of the Ao-Naga tribe in Nagaland. Traditionally, it was meant to signify the achievements of warriors who had won enemy heads in war. Even though head hunting days are long gone, the Tsungkotepsu shawl is still central to the Ao-Naga imagination.

EVERY TIME YOU TELL A STORY offers an interpretation of history, a way of understanding the shifts that this shawl-making tradition has experienced when confronted with the certitudes of history – colonialism, new religion and assimilation in the Indian State. Through histories that have written themselves onto its fabric, how does the story continue to resonate today?

More than 300 Happy travellers

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
