An indigenous Indian artist’s suicide at a museum in Japan is mired in controversy for twenty years. Myth and memory conjure his ghost and the universe of his paintings comes alive, unraveling the mystery of his death and the enigma of his life. An allegory on transformation and rebirth in the modern world, Another World combines documentary with animation to probe the heart of an artist caught between the forest, the city, and a world of museums.
