The Bitter Drink (2003)
26 mins/ English

of the most powerful corporations in the world - the Coca Cola Company.
To die for land – the ultimate sacrifice (2009)
30 mins/English subtitles
This film captures the
dalit-adivasi land reclamation struggle in Chengara, Kerala. Located in
Pathanamthitta district, Chengara is witness to the occupation, by some
5000 dalit-adivasi families, of over 2000 acres of land illegally
claimed by the Harrison Malayalam Company Ltd. For the people who took
over this commercial rubber plantation, the occupation is a defiant way
to highlight their situation - over the years, plantation companies in
collusion with state agencies have ensured that dalits and adivasis are
now alienated from their ancestral homes.
