Freedom, 58 min
Dir. Amar Kanwar
 
"Freedom" is a documentary film about nature and captivity, about 
working people resisting an onslaught on their livelihoods, about 
democracy, profit and the sound of the rain. 
 
The film documents and presents insights into many different  peoples 
struggles in India from the British colonial empire to the 
globalisation of today, from the anti mining tribal resistance in 
Kashipur and Gandhmardhan in Orissa, the mass movements in Chattisgarh 
to the coastal communities in their struggle against big ports and 
industrial parks in Kutch and Umbergaon.  
 
"Freedom" was filmed on a DV camera and shot mainly in Assam, Bihar, 
Orissa, Chattisgarh, Gujarat and Delhi.
