Over the years, we have built up an extensive library of films – political films, documentaries and features. Keeping track of the films has been a major task in itself for all of us. We are in the process of revamping our cataloging process, updating our film lists and making it easier for everybody – so bear with us till we run the last mile. In the meanwhile, here is a starting list of synopses. DO check back often, this will be updated constantly. And, just because a film is not on this list doesn’t mean we don’t have it, just that it needs to go through a process of verification and backups before it makes it to this list! Email if you want to borrow a film on this list. Click on the film title for a detailed synopsis of the film.
