WCFF Listeners of the Wind - The Pardhi Story - Panel discussion with producers on Friday October 18

Producer & Director: Shatabdi Chakrabart
Country: India | World Premiere

Listeners of the Wind- The Pardhi story, is a short documentary on the Pardhi community, a forest dwelling people, living in the jungles of Central India. The Pardhis are traditionally hunters and were used extensively by Kings and Britishers. However, after the British left India, the Pardhis were denounced as a tribe and were stuck in a viscous cycle of crime. Today the younger generation has given up hunting and work as wildlife conservationists using their age old knowledge to preserve the forests and live a a sustainable lifestyle.
