Anand Patwardhan wants you to vote for reason this summer. And in that spirit, he has finally released the official trailer of his acclaimed documentary Reason. Reason | Vivek is an eight part documentary film, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival 2018 and won the coveted IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary, the festival’s main award worth 15,000 EU.
The film (more like an eight chapter series) charts the rise of religious and nationalist fundamentalism in Indian society. And all those who fight for the poor bear the brunt of rising Hindu majoritarianism and a complicit corporate media. He examines the far right at huge rallies where fascism is normalized, but also introduces us to rationalists who, despite appearing on hit lists, lead a growing resistance. Watch the official trailer here.
Anand Patwardhan is a seven time National Award winning filmmaker of Bombay Our City (1985), Una Mitran Di Yaad Pyaari (1990), Ram Ke Naam (1992), two awards for Father, Son, and Holy War (1996), War And Peace (2004), Jai Bhim Comrade (2011).
