Marathi poet Nagraj Manjule’s impressive debut feature tells the story of Jabya, a Dalit boy, and his family’s struggle against daily prejudice in their Maharashtra village. Being labeled untouchable does not stop Jabya from dreaming beyond his caste: buying a pair of jeans and longing for the affections of Shalu, an upper caste classmate.

What begins as a carefree look at a child’s desires and antics transforms into an insightful and damning look at caste discrimination. Refusing to reduce its Dalit characters to victims – most explicitly at the film’s
explosive conclusion – FANDRY builds from a murmur to a defiant roar.

Released in February, 2014, Fandry is in Marathi with
English subtitles and 104 minutes in duration.
