Smarana - Remembering Lost Children (Telugu)

This is a film on the agony of the mothers who lost their children in the ongoing Naxalite movement in Andhra Pradesh. About a dozen mothers who are essentially non-political and do not necessarily believe in their deceased children's politics, talk about their memories, the trauma, repression they have undergone both physically and emotionally when their children were away from home fighting for others' causes. Mothers were randomly interviewed from two regions where the movement is intense - Uddanam area of Srikakulam district and Jangoan area of Warangal district.

The film maker recently won India's most prestigious prize in
Journalism -The Ram Nath Goenka Award
