Jai Bhim Comrade

Anand Patwardhan, outspoken activist and filmmaker, occupies a singular position in Indian cinema, using his documentary work to dissect the hypocrisies of the Indian establishment. This extraordinary chronicle and political odyssey of the Dalit (“untouchable”) movement in India is arguably the highpoint to Patwardhan’s remarkable career as Indian cinema’s most accomplished documentary filmmaker. Jai Bhim Comrade (also a major influence on last year’s Court) is indispensible Third Cinema filmmaking.
