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. We have now dubbed the movie to Bengali!

The 40 minute movie is free to watch in Swedish or Bengali, and we even made English subtitles that you can enable in YouTube settings.

Enjoy the movie!
