The Bharat Pavilion at the 77th Cannes Film Festival witnessed a momentous occasion as Academy Award-winning composer A R Rahman unveiled the first look and teaser of his latest venture, a groundbreaking feature documentary titled ‘Headhunting to Beatboxing’ directed by Rohit Gupta. The unveiling took place at the Bharat Pavilion at the 77th Cannes Film Festival, marking a proud moment for Indian cinema on the global stage.

Headhunting to Beatboxing explores the fascinating journey of rhythm and sound, tracing the evolution of music across cultures, tribes and generations. From the ancient traditions of headhunting tribes to the musical renaissance in the state, the documentary promises to take audiences on an immersive and enlightening musical anthropological odyssey.

"Music has this transformative power to change a society and to connect and bring relevance to existence. 'Headhunting to Beatboxing' is a celebration of this universal rhythm that unites humanity in its diverse expressions. We look forward to the start of its film festival journey and what better than Cannes which celebrates cinema to make the first announcement on the film” said Rahman, expressing his enthusiasm.

“5 years in the making, the journey of this film has been a sort of metamorphosis for me. The rich and vibrant music today, transcending the scars of the past is something that truly blew me away during the making. I am excited to see audiences witness our hard work and the magic that exists in the music of Nagaland” added Gupta.

The film marks multiple award winner, Rahman’s second major foray into the realm of filmmaking as producer, with his earlier production 99 Songs which premiered at the Busan International film festival.
