     World-renowned filmmaker Anand Patwardhan joins us for a festival of screenings and discussions. Working from Mumbai, India since the late 1970's, Patwardhan has fashioned a mode of committed filmmaking that interrogates and disrupts social injustice on local and international levels. He has created some of the most important films in the canon of global activist documentary.

    The centerpiece of the festival will be a screening of Patwardhan’s latest, much-anticipated masterpiece Jai Bhim Comrade (2012). Shot over fourteen years, the film is a paean to a community of Dalit (“Untouchable”) activists, poets and musicians who have responded to extreme oppression and violence with inspiring insight and irrepressible spirit. The festival will also include screenings of selections from his foundational oeuvre and discussions with Wellesley faculty.
