Chennai-based filmmaker Amshan Kumar’s “Manusangada,” a true story that depicts the signalling of the rise of dalit struggles in contemporary India, is one on the final list of 26 feature films that have been selected to the Indian Panorama section of the 48th International Film Festival of India, to be held in Goa from November 20 to 28.
“Manusangada” is the only Tamil film that has been selected for screening at the Indian Panorama.
The movie portrays the life of Kolappan, a dalit, who is forced by upper caste people to carry his father’s corpse through a thorny and unformed route to an uncertain graveyard. With stunning shots and a powerful script, the movie brings in how the protagonist struggles to provide a deserved burial for his father.
