Thanks to all of you who came down on November 14th!

We dedicate the screening 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

THE BOY IN THE BRANCH

"The Branch is the Life of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh"
(Mohan Bhagwat, RSS leader)

Set at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur, India, 'The Boy in the Branch' is a film about the indoctrination of young Hindu boys by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (the RSS), India's foremost Hindu fundamentalist organization. Juxtaposing the activities of two different RSS 'shakhas' or branches, the film documents the stories and the games, the rituals and the play that socialize the young RSS recruit.


THE MEN IN THE TREE

The sequel to 'The Boy in the Branch', the film revisits the RSS, a Hindu right-wing organization in India after a gap of eight years. Vachani returned to Nagpur to meet the characters from his earlier film. At one level, this is a film about memory. It is a documentary in the form of a personal revisit where a filmmaker returns to the issues, the locations and the subjects of an earlier film. At another level, The Men in the Tree is a political documentary on the RSS and Hindu fundamentalism. It is about some of the individuals, the stories and the myths, the buildings and the branches that enable the growth of the RSS and its Hindutva ideology.
