KOLKATA: The award-winning animation films of Indian American Manick Sorcar have become the subject of a research paper in the U.S. for bringing Indian culture alive through animation.

Denver-based Sorcar's work, including animation classics on children's fables from India, is the research topic of a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design at Savannah, Georgia.

"Manick Sorcar: Animations that Teach Indian Cultures" is the subject of research of Wendy M Jensen, a student at the collage who has a Bachelor in Fine Arts with a double major in Animation and Visual Effects.

"I am happy to know that my works are now a subject of research in the U.S. It will help spread Indian culture in the US," Sorcar said from Denver.

Sorcar is the son of the legendary magician PC Sorcar Sr and brother of PC Sorcar Jr.

Wendy's paper goes deep inside his award-winning animation classics on children's fables from India.

"His unique and personal creative ideas exceed some of the large companies' consistent styles which tend to be overly standard to the animation business," she wrote.

"They are unique because his intentions are not to compete with commercial cartoons but to give Americans an insight into the folklore and culture of rural India."

Sorcar shot to limelight in the early 1990s for his first animation in combination with live action, Deepa and Rupa: A Fairy Tale From India, which won a series of prestigious awards at several film festivals.

Mixing animation with live performances, he has produced children's videos from the basement of his home in Denver.
