Cinema House | The Eve of Elections | In a Dissent Manner | Screening 🗓


10 in stock

The campus of Aligarh Muslim University became a battleground on 15 December 2019 when police and the Rapid Action Force entered the campus on the pretext of dispersing anti-CAA protestors and inflicted what can only be described as one of the worst cases of police brutality on Indian students in recent years. Ehraz Asmaduz Zaman’s In A Dissent Manner explores the events of that one night and its horrific after-effects.
