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.
