Film: Reason

Anand Patwardhan | 154min | 2019 | India

Reason takes us to a macrocosm – India, the world’s largest democracy. Its eight chapters are a chilling account of how murder and mind control is systematically dismantling secular democracy in a country which once aspired not just to Liberty, Egalite and Fraternity, but to lead the post-war world out of a mindless spiral of violence.

Filmmaker: Anand Patwardhan

Anand Patwardhan has been making political documentaries for over four decades, pursuing diverse issues that are at the crux of socio-political life in India. Many of his films were at one time or another banned by the censors and by State television channels and became the subject of litigation. Anand, who successfully challenged these censorship rulings in court, has also been active in movements for communal harmony as well as movements against unjust, unsustainable development; casteism; militarism; and nuclear nationalism.
