In the name of God by Anand Patwardhan( Visual )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though India is a secular state, religious fundamentalism grips much of its population. This film focuses on efforts by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to destroy a 16th century mosque in Ayodhya supposedly built by Babar, the first Mughal emperor of India. The VHP claim the mosque was built at the birthplace of the Hindu god Ram after Babar razed an existing temple; they are determined to build a new temple to Ram on the same site. This controversial issue, unresolved by successive governments, has led to religious riots costing thousands their lives and culminating in the mosque's destruction by the Hindus in 1992. Examines the motivations that led to the drastic actions of the Hindu militants, as well as the efforts of secular Indians to combat the religious intolerance

Pitra, Putra Aur Dharamyuddha = Father, son and holy war( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in Hindi and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the politically polarized world, universal ideals are rare. In India, as in many places, at times the vacuum is filled by religious zealotry. But why? This documentary examines Indian patriarchy, machismo, and the attitudes they generate toward women and minorities in India, as well as the exploitation of ancient history, popular culture, prejudice, and religion by the unscrupulous for political gain. Violence--whether against women or members of other regions and religions--is embraced by men as a vital component of being "a real man." If the origin of violence against "the other" lays in male insecurity, itself a product of this construction of "manhood," where do the men of India go from there? Forward, or back?

Jai Bhim comrade by Anand Patwardhan( Visual )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In India, members of the Dalit ("Untouchable") caste were systematically discriminated against and oppressed for thousands of years, denied education, and treated as bonded labor. By the 1920's Bhimrao Ambedkar broke the taboo, winning doctorates abroad and fighting for the emancipation of his people. His legend still spreads through poetry and song. This film was shot over 14 years by acclaimed political documentarian Anand Patwardhan, whose work pursues diverse and controversial issues at the crux of Indian social and political life and has been frequently targeted by state censors. Epic in its scope and ambition, the film stands as both a record of recent history of the Dalits and an eloquent testimony to the power of countering superstition and religious bigotry with reason

Krānti kī taraṅgeṃ = "Waves of revolution--" by Anand Patwardhan( Visual )

in 3 languages and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Waves of Revolution, made during the repressive days of the Emergency in India, documents the 1974-75 uprising of the people of Bihar in Eastern India. By 1974, India with its few rich and many poor had become a seething mass of discontents. The Bihar Movement was initiated by students and led by the veteran Gandhian Socialist Jayaprakash Narain (JP). By 1974 it had attracted a mass following amongst all sections of the population. Nonviolent and reformist in character, the movement helped focus attention on the grievances of the people. During the Emergency it became, along with its leader JP, the symbol of resistance to dictatorship, culminating in the electoral defeat of the Congress Party in March 1977. The film was completed in secret in 1975 using outdated film stock and makeshift equipment

1 edition published in 2011 in Hindi and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a politically polarized world, universal ideals are rare. In India, as elsewhere, the vacuum is filled by religious zeal. Minorities are made scapegoats of every calamity as nations subdivide into religious and ethnic zones, each seemingly eager to annihilate the other or extinguish itself on the altar of martyrdom. Father, Son and Holy War explores in two parts the possibility that the psychology of violence against “the other” may lie in male insecurity, itself an inevitable product of the very construction of "manhood."--Container
