Published Date: 11/11/2017 (Saturday)

மனுசங்கடா (Manusangada), Amshan Kumar has been selected in the 39th Cairo International Film Festival.

The film, a true story, is about Kolappan, a low caste dalit, is forced by upper caste people to carry his father's corpse through a thorny and unformed route to an uncertain graveyard. When he finds the official powers aligning with casteist forces, Kolappan begins a protest to enforce social liberty equal to all. Will he succeed in bringing a change in the situation? The film 'Manusangada' a true story that took place as lately as 2016, depicts the signaling of the rise of Dalit struggles in contemporary India against long standing human rights violations.




The international premiere of Manusangada will be in Cairo Film Festival (CIFF) which is considered one of the 15 most important international film festivals in the world. The International Federation of Film Producers Association (FIAPF) which has given CIFF the category “A” status is the oldest and only internationally accredited cultural feature film festival in the Arab World, Africa and the Middle East.
