In 1997, a statue of Ambedkar in a Dalit colony in Mumbai was desecrated.
As angry residents gathered, police opened fire, killing 10. Vilas Ghogre,
a leftist  poet, hanged himself in protest.

Jai Bhim Comrade, shot over 14 years, follows the poetry and music of a
subaltern tradition of reason that has fought superstition and religious
bigotry with poetry and art since the days of the Buddha.

Many artists featured in the film are underground to evade arrest. For more

Anand Patwardhan has been making investigative documentaries in India for
over four decades. His films have faced state censorship and the wrath of
religious fundamentalists.
