Kaise Jeebo Re! (How Do I Survive, My Friend!)

This film tells the struggles of uprootment, survival, and human dignity. This feature length documentary was compiled from footage that was shot over a period of six years in the Narmada Valley and other areas where resistance against dams has taken place. The film is in English, Gujarati, and Hindi, as well as the Bhilali and Gondi tribal languages.The co-directors of the film are Anurag Singh, involved in photography and film-making on political, environmental and social issues since 1984, and Jharana Jhaveri, a student of social movements who has been involved with human rights, labor, environmental, and anti-communal movements. She uses film as a medium for social transformation and to train rural and urban people.
