Janson Media today announced the release to worldwide television, VOD, and new media markets of Mystic India: An Incredible Journey of Inspiration. The latest release in the company’s Giant Screen Films Collection, now available in HDTV, rediscovers a land of many mysteries and fascinations. Mystic India is the world’s first large-format epic on India, and provides an in-depth look at the culture and history of India, following the incredible journeys of Neelkanth – a young boy who traveled throughout this vast majestic land over the course of many years.

Created by the award-winning team of director Keith Melton, cinematographer Reed Smoot, and screenwriter Mose Richards, Mystic India tells the story of an 11-year old boy’s spiritual journey, and in the process captures the beauty and intrigue of India through breathtaking images. The documentary film follows Neelkanth to the icy peaks of the Himalayas and the cool, blue Lake Mansarovar, into the wild jungles of Sunderbans and the rain-forests of Assam, through the barren deserts, and to the silent shores of South India. The audience can explore and learn from the majesty and the mysticism of India’s art and architecture, music and dance, faces and festivals, customs and costumes which are brought to life on the giant screen.

Mystic India was filmed in over 52 locations throughout India. The detailed and authentic recreations of sacred shrines and traditional festivals were made possible by a cast of over 45,000 volunteers, secured by producer BAPS Charities, a nonprofit international charity organization committed to sincerely serving the world by caring for individuals, families and communities. This film transports audiences to some of India’s most sacred and treasured destinations, and discover why Mark Twain once termed India “the one land that all desire to see”. Mystic India: An Incredible Journey of Inspiration (1 x 45′) is now available to worldwide television, VOD, and new media markets exclusively through Janson Media.
