Screening of a Mizo documentary film "Rambuai"

Held on Friday, 27th October, 2017 at 6.30 PM

Bangalore International Centre had arranged the screening of a documentary film “RAMBUAI” directed by Maulee Senapati on Friday, 27th October, 2017 at 6.30 PM. Mr. Sanjoy Hazarika and Ms. Preeti Gill, Producers and Script Writers of the film were present during the screening of the film for interaction with the audience.
Rambuai: That single word captures the drama and trauma that swept the lives of over a quarter million people in what is the present state of Mizoram. Rambuai means the trouble years and the Mizos do talk about it, which they are doing increasingly now after decades of silence.
This documentary has unravelled the political history of the Mizos through this medium and an outreach to the audience along with interaction with the public.
Both Mr. Hazarika and Ms. Gill mentioned about the deep undercurrents of resentment and alienation with the Mizos harboured against the Government of India ever since independence, and about how the younger generation is finding their own avenues and opportunities towards mainstreaming. They stressed that all the roadblocks which impede this process should be removed.
The event was well attended.
