About the Film

An animation film ‘Sri Aurobindo: A New Dawn’ is being made, to inspire the youth of India and the world through the story of Sri Aurobindo, as our offering for the 150th year of Sri Aurobindo’s birth.

We have commissioned this project to India's leading professional animation studio: Studio Eeksaurus Productions Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai. An acclaimed team of artists has come together to render this movie with the best aesthetics and very high technical quality. Every frame for this film will be a 2D hand drawn image.  

The expected budget is INR 2.25 Crores (~USD 294,000 / GBP 234,000). This being a research Project, all Indian donors will receive 35(i)(iii) tax-exemption under the Indian IT Act. Your active support is required for the successful completion of the film which we plan to release around 31st December 2022. 

Let us join hands to make this film! 



On 15th August 2021, a short video-trailer was launched with the intention of gathering feedback from viewers. Several insights have been received and we decided to get together with the Production Team from Mumbai, in order to work out a script that will incorporate these insights.

During Oct-Nov. 2021,  Team Eeksaurus came to Puducherry and held intense discussions with several long-time followers of Sri Aurobindo and what emerged was something uplifting and inspiring, to say the least. We present to you a Glimpse of these insightful discussions on a wide range of topics:

We are also happy to share that 70% of our budget money has been collected and we are sure that by the Mother’s Grace, we will collect the remaining amount through the continued support of our well-wishers.
