Synopsis: Farewell Goddess is a documentary based on the most important street festival of West Bengal, Durga Puja. The film is particularly interested in the last ritual of the festival, which involves submerging the festival deity into the water and bidding goodbye after an almost two-week’s long frenetic celebration. The film maker raises philosophical questions about this curious ritual and the unceremonious dumping of the idol after the festival.
