India's Broken People

Three short documentary films by Michael Lawson focusing on the plight of the Dalit (or 'untouchable') people of India.
  • 'Hope for the Children' shows life in Dalit villages through the eyes of the children, and explains something of the history of untouchability.

  • 'Kancha Ilaiah in Conversation' is an in depth face-to-face interview with one of the world's leading authorities on the Dalits, and contains a passionate appeal to the West to support the Dalit cause.

  • 'Hope for the Children: Short Version' is a truncated version of the first film, designed to be shown to small groups and at public gatherings.
