This Action Learning Saturday we are organizing a movie screening "COURT". The movie was released in 2015, and was as real and searing as it can get to today's situation of the judicial system.
Synopsis: A Dalit activist-poet is held responsible for the ‘suicide’ of a sewage cleaner. ‘Court’ leads us through his arrest and judicial remand and hearings, resulting in a film that is throbbing, urgent, vital, belying the sparse, near-documentarian manner of the telling.
Who is at fault? The frail activist with a hardy soul, the lawyers who fight for and against him, the judge who decides his fate? Or We The People, adept at breaking the rules and getting away with murder? Or, The System, where everything decent comes to die?
Genre: Drama Duration: 1 hour 56 mins Language: Marathi and Hindi
Date: 23rd February, Saturday Time: 4:30 p.m. Venue: Youth Alliance Office B-94, 2nd Floor, Lajpat Nagar -1 New Delhi (Map Location)
