The Post Office

A puppet movie based on Rabindranath Tagore's play




We made a puppet movie!

In 1912 Nobel Prize author Rabindranath Tagore wrote "The Post Office". In 2015 a group of pupeteers, actors and artists led by Silvia Bergman envisioned the play as a puppet movie with Swedish actors and puppeteers.

The 40 minute movie is free to watch in Swedish, Bengali and English. There are English subtitles that you can enable in YouTube settings.

Enjoy the movie!
