Amrita – a story that lives in Art is a new documentary from Amrita Sher-Gil Cultural Centre in Budapest/Embassy of India in Hungary.

The film features the perspectives of key individuals from the Cultural Centre who have studied and worked on Amrita Sher-Gil over the last decade, and tells the story and journey of Amrita as a person and an artist.

While the main subject of the film is Amrita herself, there are inevitable comparisons to be made with Frida Kahlo, whose life and art in many ways mirrored that of Sher-Gil.

Amrita Sher-Gil Cultural Centre will also be showcasing the film around December 5th 2020, when they are holding an event in Budapest celebrating Amrita’s anniversary.
