India's New Beginnings

The Dalit population of India have been persecuted and deprived of their rights for centuries. The problem persists to this very day, yet there are changes.

Dalit children are being helped in Dalit Education Centres to gain a basic education, and small scale opportunities for skill based training in situations as diverse as IT and dress design and manufacture are beginning to make a real difference to Dalit communities all over India. In this informative, often moving documentary, film-maker Michael Lawson goes behind the scenes to discover some of the good news stories for the Dalits in their otherwise deeply deprived and unjust world.
