A low caste poet-singer-activist is accused of abetment to suicide.
Dir Chaitanya Tamhane
With Vira Sathidar, Vivek Gomber, Geetanjali Kulkarni
Marathi, Gujarati, English and Hindi with EST
Kamble (Sathidar) is a low caste poet-singer-activist who is tried for abetment to suicide after a sewer cleaner dies, apparently after listening to his song! Tamhane’s feature debut is an arthouse film that skewers the Indian judiciary and redefines what a Bombay film in Hindi (and other languages) can be. It deservedly won top prizes at Venice in 2014.
