The official YouTube channel of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has chosen to feature a video of Tamil director Gnanavel explaining his critically acclaimed courtroom drama 'Jai Bhim', under its 'Scene At the Academy' segment.
The 12 minute 47 second video clip begins with the opening scenes of the film. It then shows director Gnanavel explaining about the theme of the film. This is followed by important sequences from the film.
In the video, Gnanavel says, "The opening scene of the film shows the police segregating tribal people on the basis of caste. You could call it the film's theme. How easily a powerful system can brand the oppressed as habitual offenders on the basis of caste.”
"This film is not just about custodial violence faced by tribal people. It is about how caste discrimination forms the basis of custodial discrimination," he adds. Click the Movie button below for more info:
