Anand Patwardhan Is Back With A Bold, Relevant Documentary

Veteran documentary filmmaker Anand Patwardhan has been making socio-political and human rights-oriented films for almost five decades. Over the years, his work has explored religious fundamentalism, sectarianism and casteism in India.

Born in 1950 in Mumbai, Patwardhan completed his BA in English literature from Mumbai University, before pursuing a degree in sociology at the Brandeis University in the United States and finally doing an MA in communication studies at the McGill University in Canada. His first film Waves of Revolution or Kranti Ki Tarangein (1971) spoke about government repression during the Bihar Movement. Since then he has gone on to make notable films like Bombay: Our City (Hamara Shahar) (1985), In Memory of Friends (1990), In the Name of God (Ram ke Nam) (1992), Father, Son, and Holy War (1995), A Narmada Diary (1995), War and Peace (2002) and Jai Bhim Comrade (2011), which have won him various national and international awards.

The 70-year-old’s latest work Reason is relevant an eight-part documentary that explores how faith still has an upper hand over reason in this country, and charts India’s ongoing slide from a secular democracy towards hardening divisions of power, caste and religious belief — all of which are enforced increasingly by violence. Among other things, Reason recounts the work, struggles and eventual assassinations of social activists Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare. Watch the trailer here.

You can attend the online premiere of Reason on Sunday, December 27 at 3pm on BookMyShow. After the screening, you can attend a Q&A session with Anand Patwardhan.
