Netflix and UNESCO have come together to celebrate India’s rich cultural heritage through the popular animated series “Mighty Little Bheem” which encompasses the adventures of Bheem. The animated series premiered on the streaming platform in 2019.
A series of short videos, ‘One Country, Incredible Diversity’ featuring Bheem will focus on India’s cultural journey, including monuments, living heritage, performing arts, social practices, rituals and festivals such as Dussehra, Diwali and Holi.
The videos will be released on UNESCO New Delhi’s Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter pages. The first video in the series has already been released on Friday, ahead of the 75th Independence Day.
Eric Falt, Director and UNESCO Representative to Bhutan, India, Maldives and Sri Lanka, said, “We are pleased to partner with Netflix to take you through a journey of India’s rich cultural diversity.”
