What the Fields Remember by Subasri Krishnan
On 18th February 1983, around 1800 Bengali Muslims were killed in Nellie and surrounding villages in Assam, in one morning. No one was ever prosecuted and the incident remains in the annals of India’s violent history. This Film is a revisiting of the event and an exploration of how the survivors remember the violence, 32 years later, and how the spaces that witnessed this violence continue to mark people’s relationship to history and memory.
