Categories: South Asia, India, Film, Technology

Shashwati informs [1] that a significant portion of the budget of the movie “Please Don’t Beat Me, Sir!”, which is having its world premier at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in October, came from individual donations collected over the internet. The movie is about a troupe of young Chhara actors using theater to fight police brutality and the stigma of criminality.
