MUMBAI: Sheffield International Documentary Festival 2012 will screen two Indian films this year.
They are Anand Patwardhan‘s Jai Bhim Comrade and Dylan Mohan Gray‘s Fire in the Blood. The festival will be held from 13 to 17 June in Sheffield, UK.
While Patwardhan‘s Jai Bhim Comrade is an epic eye-opener for those who are unfamiliar with India‘s severe caste discrimination, Fire in the Blood is an 84-minute documentary in English, Hindi, Manipuri and Xhosa. Fire in the Blood examines the battle that a number of inspiring players - including the government of India - waged to level the playing field for AIDS sufferers.
Launched in 1994, it is one of the biggest international documentary festivals in the world.
