South of the City

This 39-minute documentary deals with the lives of three boys from Jamia Nagar, Delhi and how things changed for them and those living in the area after the infamous Batla House encounter in September 2008 that saw police raids in pursuit of alleged terrorists that led to loss of lives and many arrests. The film also looks at perceptions of various communities and the ensuing repercussions that ruptured and tainted the very soul of a minority.
