5. There is a fire in your forest film screening – Bhopal
A film on the politics of conservation. A film by Krishnendu Bose located shot in Kanha in Madhya Pradesh, probably the most famous tiger park in the world. It is also from where the first of the adivasis were relocated in the early ’70s. Presented as one of the best case studies of people relocation for conservation, it maps the real story of Kanha.
The film begs a re-look into the conservation policies being presently followed, as it tries to open a debate and fill in the people’s side of the story. The film travels with its central character, a wildlife photojournalist, who visits Kanha and finds a change in his understanding of ‘conservation’. He tells us the story of Kanha in a flashback. Check out this space for updated details on the venue.
When: 9th August
Where: Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
