15 times more comprehensive than the Bible, the Mahabharata is one of mankind's main spiritual sources. Peter Brook and his screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière created a three-part film based on their legendary theatrical production, which is available here in the original English and German language versions. At the invitation of the Venice International Film Festival, Brook also produced the shorter three-hour cinema version, which is subtitled in German for the first time.
A detailed booklet and an informative contribution on the making of the film provide the first complete edition of this masterpiece, which is a key to understanding Indian mythology, religion, philosophy and history.
