About the Film:
The film documents the lives of Manual Scavengers in Tamilnadu and the dehumanising that comes with their occupation. The film brings out the fact that manual scavenging is a problem of caste, class, and gender. It raises issues related to contractual employment, delayed payments made to the #SanitationWorkers and to the larger context of ostracization faced by these #manualscavengers.

About the Film: What happens to families in the absence of sons? What happens to land in the absence of farmers? What happens to communities in the absence of men? The Film weaves together testaments of individual ambitions and family biographies from Punjab, to chronicle the gradual transformation of the agrarian landscape and patriarchal traditions through ongoing transnational migration. Being a successful man now entails leaving one’s village, travelling abroad and sending money home. The Film shows how young men's decisions to emigrate implicate families and communities across North India. 

About the Film maker: For Indian-born filmmaker Harjant Gill, making films is about casting a spotlight on urgent and often overlooked social issues and making marginalised members of society feel less isolated and more understood. His films include As if it Matters, Everything, Some Reasons for Living, Lot’s Wife, Mission Movie and Milind Soman Made Me Gay. He was recently featured in a book Our Time is Now: Young People Changing the World. Gill was born in India, grew up in San Francisco and now lives in Washington DC, where he teaches Anthropology and Cultural Studies at the American University. His research looks at cinema, masculinity and migration in north India. Gill is also a Point Foundation Scholar.

About the Film:
A sleepy, idyllic Indian village, Ichchapur in southwest Odisha’s Kalahandi district, suddenly wakes up in a spontaneous uprising of Shudras (Dalits, Adivasis, and OBCs) against age-old, Brahmanic-Feudalism. The film captures the momentum and essence of the uprising over a span of more than a year, digs into history and cultural nuances, and builds in a narrative of the struggle through testimonies and voices of the very people in action.

About the Filmmaker: Subrat Kumar Shau works as an Independent Filmmaker, Journalist, and Researcher . His filmography up until this film includes ‘I Sing, therefore I am!’ (2008); DAMaged (2009), All alone and lonely (2010), Drops (2010), Sambhav: it is possible (2012), Mlechha Sanhaara: India’s Kalki Project (2013).
