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.
