অন্য ছবি (On UAPA and POTA)

In 2008, after the Mumbai attacks, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act, 1967 (the Act was introduced in 1963) was further strengthened. The ambit of U.A.P.A. has been further extended in 2019 and we are facing its consequences now. Nevertheless, however, I made a non-fiction regarding the consequences of this draconian Act for Kolkata TV around 2008/9 and Amitava Sengupta had a copy (except the first sequence and downloaded with TV tuner) of this film with him. Sujato Bhadro, Debaprasad Bandyopadhyay , Joya Mitra helped a lot for this film to be made. Albeit this non-fiction bears no English subtitle, it can be of little use for today’s Bangla-speaking activists.— Kaushik Mukherjee, Director

Participants: Sujata Bhadra, Jaya Mitra, Debaprasad Bandyopadhyay
