“Mandala” is an animated short film about the Impermanence of Things. Once a Mandala is completed, it is brushed away – never to exist again. And in that very act of “destruction” of Mandala lies the process of renewal. As the Mandala’s sand is returned to the earth, the metaphor for the continual flow of life is highlighted. For what is life but a brief moment of beauty – only to be wiped away to create something new.
Directed by Kiran Bhakta Joshi (Nepal)
