Even the Crows
EVEN THE CROWS – A DIVIDED GUJARAT by Sheena and Sonum Sumaria. 2014, 1h18 Presented by Solidarity Network Kenya.

Date: May 5, 2014
Venue: Alliance Francaise
Time: 6 pm
Entry: Free

At a time where the controversial Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, is running to be India’s next Prime Minister, the documentary explores the way in which his politics and Hindu nationalist ideology have polarized Gujarat along religious lines. Since the anti-Muslim riots that exploded in 2002, the Muslim minority population have been denied justice and marginalized to the ghettos.
Through the intimate stories of American-Gujarati Nishrin, whose father, a prominent Muslim MP, was butchered during the 2002 Gujarat riots, and British-Gujarati Imran, who was the sole survivor when he was attacked along with his two uncles while on holiday in the state, the film explores the minority community’s ongoing struggle for justice.

Screening will be followed by a discussion on the role of transitional justice in addressing legacies of human rights violations and consolidating democracy with Njonjo Mue, transitional justice expert.
