Screening of India Untouched: Stories of a People Apart (2007) followed by a discussion on casteism/racism in contemporary society.
The documentary is a comprehensive examination of the “untouchables” in India. While the media projects a positive image of a democratic India, filmmaker Stalin K spends four years traveling the country to expose the continued oppression of the Dalits, “the broken people,” in a wide variety of communities, including Sikhs, Christians and Muslims.
