|Description||Ganesh Versus the Third Reich is poignant, heart-warming, beautiful, disarming, full of vulnerability and sly humour, questioning who has the right to tell a story and who has the right to be heard.
A young man is inspired to create a play about Ganesh, the Hindu god of overcoming obstacles. In his story, the elephant-headed god travels through Nazi Germany to reclaim the swastika, an ancient Hindu symbol. But as the play unfolds the actors themselves begin to feel the weighty responsibility of storytellers, and the director must find the strength to overcome the difficulties in his own life, and defend his play and his collaborators against an overbearing colleague.
