A film by Anand Patwardhan

The ongoing atrocity of caste.

Anand Patwardhan’s new film “Jai Bhim Comrade” took 14 years to complete. Beginning with an incident at Ramabai Colony in Mumbai where 10 Dalits were shot dead by the police in 1997, the film goes on to explore the music of protest of those who were treated as “untouchables” by a caste hierarchy that has ruled the Indian sub-continent for thousands of years.

Best film: Mumbai International Film Festival, India
