Starring Rahul Bhat, Tillotama Shome
In a country where the voice of the powerless is often suppressed, it’s time to explore the pain of labour.
A 2017 production of Dim Lights Pictures, Inc and Platoon One Films.
“It portrays workers at a (I think) chromium sulfate plant, in India, union-represented, who are dying of cancer. One guy decides change is needed. He organizes his co-workers, with all the ebbs and flows that happen when you do that – threats, fights, people step up and then back down, he’s beaten up. He pisses blood. He goes to a labor inspector who seems great – and then gets paid off by the boss. The boss tries to pay our hero off. There is a vote and the new union of the real workers is voted in and our hero becomes the leader. It reminds me of ‘Christ in Concrete,’ but it has a happy ending. ”
