Sorcar's Animation Highlight
at Coors Brewing Co. Annual Function


Director in Person: Manick Sorcar takes the microphone for a Question and Answer Session with the audience after screening his animation at the Annual Function of Coors Brewing Company.

April 25, 2002: On a personal invitation from Joanne Osborn, Director of the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Manick Sorcar was present at the Annual Function for "Take the Kid to Your Work Day" as the Director in Person for his award winning film "Deepa & Rupa: A Fairy Tale From India". The film was the highlight of the show. Prior to its screening he was introduced to the audience as the "distinguished animation film maker, Colorado's own Manick Sorcar". After the show, he was invited on stage again to take a question and answer session with the packed audience.

"Deepa & Rupa" is the winner of over eight international awards including the Gold Plaque at the Chicago International Film Festival. It is India's first animation mixed with live action, and is based on a children's story from the State of Bengal. "The Woodcutter's Daughter", also an animation mixed with live action (a Finalist at the 40th New York Festivals), is followed by "The Sage & The Mouse", a winner of the Gold Medal at the International Film Festival of New York - both are based on popular stories from The Panchatantra, the classic book of fables of India. "Sniff" (Gandhabichar), which received the prestigious C.I.N.E. Golden Eagle from Washington, D.C, is based on a popular non-sense poem by Sukumar Ray (of "Abol Tabol" fame).
Sorcar's animation films are regarded as "cultural bridges between East and West" and are highly popular at the schools of USA. This is the 11th continuous year the PBS stations of the Rocky mountain area have telecast Sorcar's animation during the holidays of Xmas or New Year. His animation videos are available at all libraries, or can be purchased from Tattered Cover book stores around the nation, and several internet vendors).
