18.06. "VIVEK/REASON (2018)": Film & Diskussion mit Anand Patwardhan

"Reason takes us to a macrocosm – India, the world’s largest democracy. Its eight chapters are a chilling account of how murder and mind control are being applied to systematically dismantle secular democracy in a country which once aspired not just to Liberty, Egalite and Fraternity, but to lead the post-war world out of its mindless spiral of violence and greed. And yet the battle for Reason is not lost. Even as Brahminism (a priest ordained caste hierarchy that withheld knowledge from the working castes) drapes itself in the national flag and sends out its hit squads, resistance has not ended. For every brave rationalist gunned down or driven to suicide, many more take up the mantle. Reason is then both a warning and a promise." *Herzlichen Dank an Dr. Saskia Schäfer für die finanzielle Unterstützung dieser Veranstaltung!*
