  Progress Report


Documentary films constitute a broad category of non-fictional motion pictures intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record.

"Documentary" has been described as a "filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception" that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries. The main objective of the documentary is to stimulate student interest in diverse scientific concepts, processes and hitherto unknown facets of Indian art and culture. To realise these objectives, the Centre produces documentaries drawing upon the expertise of eminent teachers and researchers from Universities and premier research institutions from across the country.

Since 1989, the Centre has produced exciting educational documentaries involving experts from the different streams like Botany, Human Biology, Performing Arts, Sport Science, Theatre and Television.
