They will be screening

1) “Ammi” – Dir: Sunil Kumar 90 min; Hindi with Eng subtitles; 2018

Ammi 2

This is one woman’s two-year fight for justice. Battered by the police, having been told by the myriad government agencies who investigate her son’s disappearance, that there are no leads, she still stands with conviction.

2) “Lynch” – Nation Dir: Shaheen Ahmed & Ashfaque EJ; 43 min; Hindi with English subtitles; 2018

Lynch Nation

A relentless journey across India listening to heart-wrenching stories of mob lynching that have torn apart families and shaken the entire nation.

3) “Hora” – Dir: Nachi; 24 min; Marathi, Hindi with English subtitles; 2018


Hora literally means a fortune teller in Marati language. It is part of a folk theatre form. Vilas Ghogre, a revolutionary poet metamorphosed the form to predict the political future of the world. Adapting that form in film’s narrative technique too we follow the life of Rupali Jadhav who is an activist singer in Kabir Kala Manch, a cultural political troupe using songs as a means of protest and revolt.

4) “Campus Rising”- Dir: Yousuf Saeed; 73 mins; Hindi and English with Eng subtitles; 2017

Campus Rising

While the students’ unrest continues in many cities, this film travels to some seven Indian universities (including Jawaharlal Nehru University, Hyderabad Central University and Banaras Hindu University among others) to record what the students and some teachers have to say about how their freedom is being curtailed, and how this movement will not die until they bring some change of perception about the rights of the underprivileged.

5) “Our Gauri” – Dir: Deepu; 67 min; Kannada, Hindi and English (subtitles); 2017

Our Gauri

Gauri Lankesh was one of Karnataka’s most prominent and fearless journalists. She was shot dead outside her house in Bengaluru on the night of 5th September, 2017. Gauri spoke out against communal forces in the country and represented dissent and freedom of speech.

The links will be available here under each film from 12 am, 25th June onwards.

25 June 2020 will mark the 45th anniversary of the infamous Emergency imposed on India. On this day, we call upon all Indian citizens to launch a peaceful, non-violent nationwide movement to fight against the SUPER EMERGENCY the country is being subjected to today.

This can only be done through upholding the Indian Constitution, contributions to nation building, organizing resistance to all violations of fundamental rights and ensuring the dignity of poor and marginalized citizens.

For the last five years India, under the regime of Narendra Modi, has been going through, what many have called the Silent or Undeclared Emergency. However, the situation in reality is much worse than what happened almost half a century ago.

It is in this context various events are held across India to protest Super Emergency. For more details read the article
