​We are going through a very challenging era. In the form of pandemics and in the form of natural disasters. The past corona period made as believe that local is future. But this is what regional people around the world have been telling us for centuries. Folklore is the life and culture traditionally followed by the people.  Different people passed their knowledge to the new generation through songs and stories Mythological stories and origin stories  around the world are the best examples for this, it was not were stories and songs but the mines of their experience and knowledge. They made their own music from the sounds of birds, animals, creeks and forests. They developed the dance by imitating the rhythms of nature. They created myths to identify right and wrong and good and bad. To accommodate the success and failure, they made the games. Each particular groups of people have their own way of life, beliefs and culture and how much they value it can be understood from the unique culture that they follow even today. Today all these regional cultures are drifting a part due to various reasons. On this occasion we should realize the importance of the folklore films and documentaries.
