DALIT DEFENDERS • 2021

DIRECTOR: Kai Liesegang

COUNTRY: Germany

RUNTIME: '82

 

SYNOPSIS: As so-called untouchables, Dalits are outside the caste system. Dalit women are at the bottom of this hierarchy. The image of a Dalit women's body as sexual available is widespread in rural areas. There are many Dalit women defending their rights. The struggle of activists like Manjula Pradeep is encouraging. They are standing up to thousand year old traditions and breaking the silence: "No, we are not weak and powerless." Giving a voice to silence, sharing experiences and struggles, is the impetus behind the first documentary by Berlin-based filmmakers fetch-media-team. Intimate accounts of the experiences of those affected and activists give the film a deep insight into the situation and the struggle of Dalits in India.
