Declaration of a Revolution

2020 was the global pandemic. This year also sparked the largest sustained protest ever in human history. Hundreds of thousands of Indian farmers camped at the borders of Delhi, protesting against three farm bills forced by the Government without any consultation from them. They slept on the streets through the freezing cold and heavy rains. Even though over 350 of them have died, still, the number of protestors continues to rise.

What motivates these people to persist against all odds? Why are their demands echoing with farmers and concerned citizens around the world? This documentary takes you on the journey to meet the protesting farmers, understand the reason for their spiritual strength and join them in Declaring a Revolution.

Director Statement

With my palm supporting my chin, looking outside my windows, I have occasionally been seeing psychedelic images of the Sun Rising In The Evening, Birds Flying Without Wings, and the Tress Singing Silence; this sustained my restlessness through and through, in spite of me, to do something like this.

When I was growing up, I always felt fascinated by moving images of Film and Television I was curious to know more about the mechanics of Film and Television production. With time coming closer to choose a career path, I broke the news to my parents that I want to go to Pune Film Institute. As expected, it solicited a big no-no from them. The reason being the film industry considered it an exercise in vain, given the world of materialism and pragmatism. I had to cave into my parents’ wishes to join the time-tested field of engineering catapulting me to America. But as the cliché says it was a blessing in disguise, as I realized my dream of getting a film education from America.

Declaration of a Revolution is my directorial debut.
