‘Guns N Guitars’

National Award Winning Director Mr. Bidyut Kotoky will be making a documentary on the legend Lou Majaw and his 38 years old celebration Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration.

The film will be in the form of a musical travelogue of north east India. A guest – known musician in their own right- will walk along with Lou and be the narrator on the journey. Through this, film we want to travel into this land of fable and tales and try to know as to why over the decade’s, children of the same land have alternately taken up Guns and Guitar to vent their woes and carve their dreams…

This journey gives us an excuse to glance at what gave shape to the voice and music of the land. We walk the less trodden paths of northeast India experiencing the sight and sound of the place along with the guitar strumming Lou Majaw…and live the dream of this land through their music and songs. The walk culminates by the stream of a 530 acre open land, where music lover from all over will have gathered to celebrate Dylan’s birthday concert
Did someone say Woodstock revisited?
