Call of the forest- 25 mins/English

This film documents the successful struggle of tribal women in Bastar in Central India to save their traditional saal forest from felling under the commercial forestry programme by the government’s Forest Department. The film captures the spontaneity and vigour of a determined group of women galvanized into action under the remarkable leadership of a middle-aged tribal woman, Mitkbai.
