Description

This symposium brings together some of South Asia’s leading filmmakers, academics, and political activists who will together meditate on the rise of right wing nationalism in South Asia.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- The role of independent and documentary cinema faced with this atmosphere of fear and intimidation, where mainstream media is used to promote the state agenda.
- The spread and popularity of digital film making platforms across South Asia
- The state-led backlash against digital film making in South Asian countries that promote regressive conservatism.
- The role of the political left in South Asia and the diaspora.
