About The DVD

IGNCA has undertaken a significant and audio-visual documentation of boatman culture of peninsular India to look into the lifestyle of traditional people whose main occupation is fishing. KERALA –The God’s own country has a great heritage of boatmen culture. The boatmen of Kerala are mainly found in the region of Kochi to Kollam. Different types of boats like Tituwalam, Catuvam, houseboats and variety of nets are used for different type of fishes. The knowledge of predicting the sea behavior and time of high probability for “catching of fish” is predicted by elders which is in vogue through orality. ONAM is the one of major festivals of Kerala. Boatmen of Kerala celebrate this festival in the form of famous “Snake Boat” race. This documentary highlights the lifestyles of fishermen community through their rituals, celebrations, religious contexts, their folklore, songs and cultural responses.

Although the modern boats and trawlers have replaced the traditional boats, diesel engines have replaced the rowing of boats but the hard work, the dedication and fight of these boatmen with the turbulent tides is still there…
