Beerappas Angst screening at Thursday Talkies


This film conceptualised by Bhargavi S Rao and Leo Saldanha, problematises the widespread shocking silence over the building of a massive military-industrial-nuclear-complex in Challakere, Chitradurga, 250 kms north of Bangalore, that is displacing over 300000 people and about 250000 livestock.  Based on interviews with communities impacted by the ongoing secretive developments, and also extensive evidence gathered in the process of challenging the projects in the National Green Tribunal, the film discusses the environmental and social impacts, and also risk assessments, of building such sensitive facilities in ecologically sensitive and socio-economically supportive Amrit Mahal Kaval grasslands of Challakere.

The film has been produced by Amrit Mahal Kaval Hitarakshana aagu Horata Samithi.

All are welcome to attend the screening and the discussion to follow, which will focus on the prevailing status of acute distress in the impacted communities.
