India. 28 min. 2018
“We, The People” explores dissent in India through protests on Jantar Mantar Road, a mile-long protest street in India’s national capital Delhi. Through three indefinite protests at Jantar Mantar Road, the film questions the socio-political reality of India vis a vis the ideals the nation set out with.
