Dear friends,

We dedicate the screenings to martyrs Narendra Dabholkar, Comrade Govind Pansare, M. M. Kalburgi, Mohammad Akhlaq, Rajib Haider, Avijit Roy, Ananta Bijoy Das, Washiqur Rahman, Niloy Neel, Faisal Arefin Dipon.

Synopses

YOU CAN DESTROY THE BODY

In August 2013 while on his morning walk, the rationalist crusader Narendra Dabholkar was gunned down by men on motorcycles. In February 2015, the popular CPI mass leader, Comrade Govind Pansare, was shot dead in an identical manner. Both had been threatened by Hindu fundamentalists. In both cases no arrests have been made. This song commemorates those who throughout history, fought and paid with their lives, for reason. The song was composed by Sachin Mali who is in jail awaiting trial under the draconian Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). It is sung by his partner Sheetal Sathe who faces the same charges but is out on bail.



KORAN SANTAN (KORANKINDER)


At least two years, twelve hours every day, memorizing over 6000 verses from Koran–that is what small kids have to do in Hifz-Khana. Many parents send their children very willingly to this special department of a madrasa, the Islamic orthodox school. The film approaches very carefully this unique religious practice, which is contradictory to the imaginings of a jaunty and easy-going childhood. The filmmaker shows the anxieties and afflictions that motivate the parents to decide on these schools. But can the children vouch for the anxieties of their parents? With this question, Dill-Riaz starts a journey through his homeland Bangladesh, a country that is now riven between religious stringency and secular ideals.
