Jai Bhim Comrade
(2012, 180 mins)


India’s Dalit (oppressed) castes were abhorred as “untouchables”. The film, shot over 14 years follows the music of protest of Maharashtra's Dalits. In an age of increasing bigotry and superstition, it is both a record of recent history as well as eloquent testimony to a rationalist tradition that has survived amongst the subaltern for thousands of years.


Excerpt JBC modi from Anand Patwardhan on Vimeo.

War and Peace/Jang aur Aman
(2002, 135 mins)

Filmed over four tumultuous years in India, Pakistan, Japan and the USA - War and Peace is documentary journey of peace activism at a time of global militarism and war. Triggered by macabre scenes of jubilation that greeted nuclear testing in the sub-continent, the film is framed by the murder of Mahatma Gandhi. Fifty years later memories of Gandhi seem like a mirage that never was, created by our thirst for peace and our very distance from it.

In the Name
of God

Ram Ke Naam
(1992, 75 minutes)

On the rise of Hindu fundamentalism as reflected in the temple/mosque conflict in Ayodhya that led to nation wide carnage.

 


Excerpt from Ram Ke Naam from Anand Patwardhan on Vimeo.

Ram Ke Naam was made a year before the final demolition of the Babri Mosque which polarized India, sparked Hindu-Muslim violence and led to increased terror attacks from both sides. The film completed in 1991-92 was meant to be a warning of what would happen if rising communal politics was not kept in check. The warning was never heeded. Today India is again on the crossroads.
