In God's land( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Tamil and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary follows the lives of villagers in Inam Alangulam, Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu as they struggle to keep their land. The mythical birth of their village God, Sudalai Swami, inspires a village's unique journey to fight oppression of the Vanamamalai Temple. Now that the clergy owns the land, the settlers are reduced to being tenant farmers and must make way for redevelopment after the land is sold off for a Special Economic Zone (SEZ). A dispute over 'god's land' begins. Recounting the history of the land, the film satirizes the exploitation perpetuated by religion and class distinction and looks at land within the larger issue of development, forcing us to recognize the totalitarian attitude of the ideals of development, ostensibly to bring economic prosperity but rarely a benefit to real users

The diary of a refugee( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Bengali and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the filmmaker's vanishing village and the uncertain life in it. Set up amidst wild jungle as a settlement for refugees from East Pakistan in 1949, the village became a busy industrial hub in the 1980s, bringing the villagers regular earnings and, thereby, uninterrupted meals. Today some 25 years after industrialisation, the village is about to be engulfed by the ever-expanding boundaries of the land-hungry industries. Having lived out of his village since childhood, the filmmaker documents the uncertain life in the village on his multiple visits over a period of five years through the life of his sister and her neighbours, who are being forced by various direct and indirect means by the alloy company in their backyard to sell off their homes and lands and relive the life of a refugee after six decades
