A documentary film on Ao folk tale titled “Yadensang & Kajepsangla” – (a folktale from Chungliyimti village) was release at NEZCC conference hall on Wednesday by chief guest K. Temjen Jamir, Editor, Tir Yimyim.
Temjen said in the past, people were able to narrate stories that happened long time back through word of mouth, and passed it on from generation to generation.
Likewise, he said it was the duty of all to pass on the folktales to the younger generation and encourage them to learn about their ancestry.
If folk tales are protected, preserved and passed on to the children, then he believed a child’s ethics would be strong.
NEZCC Director Som Kamei, IPS lauded Sademmeren for coming up with such an initiative to promote folk tales and added that it was not only an asset for the Ao community but the entire state. While giving a short introduction about the film, director, Sademmeren Longkumer said the film was about love and deceit portrayed by two young lovers from Chungliyimti village.
Further, he also expressed gratitude to NEZCC Director, Som Kamei, IPS for allotting funds to produce the film, without which, he said it would have been impossible to bring out the film.
