"Discovering Rann, is produced & directed by Sabyasachi Patra with Wild Tigress Production. Official selection and world Premiere at the 2019 WCFF.
Discovering Rann showcases teh unique landscape and biodiversity of Rann of Kutch. It not only contains shots of beautiful animals and birds but also stands out due to the emphasis on showing the behaviour of wildlife, their unique adaptations to survive in the harsh desert ecosystem, the challenges faced including life and death struggles. The struggle of the species is also seen from the perspective of wildlife conservation. It contains several small stories of different species captured through painstaking efforts spread over many days and nights. We often like to root for the underdog. In this case the audience love to root for the small Indian desert fox which uses its strengths to come out victorious by successfully thwarting the attack of a much larger Eastern imperial eagle. The plight of the jackal as a scavenger much lower down the pecking order will also make people feel for it.
This documentary showcases the denizens of Rann in a new light and hopes that viewers can learn some life lessons from it, especially from the battle strategies adopted by the protagonists in the Eastern Imperial Eagle vs Desert fox battle.
