Lynch Nation

Lynch Nation. As the name suggests, it's a documentary that covers incidents of mob lynching in the name of cow, beef etc in India in the last 4-5 years. The film is 'a relentless journey across India listening to heart-wrenching stories of mob lynching that have torn apart families and the entire nation.' We have made this film with no corporate support; it was crowd-funded, and, during the shoot as well as afterwards.
