UNTOUCHABLES


They live in ghettos and do menial jobs. They live in constant fear of being publicly humiliated, beaten and raped. They are not allowed to drink from the same wells as the upper caste or drink from the same cups at tea stalls. 138 million of them live like this everyday.

They are the Dalits or the Untouchables of India.

Untouchability was outlawed in 1955 but it still exists as a social institution in Indian society. This is a powerful documentary about one woman's crusade against the atrocities to fellow human beings who are entrapped within their own caste.

Meet Ruth Manorama, winner of the ight to Livelihood Award or the Alternate Nobel Peace Prize and watch her story from inside the ghettoes of the Untouchables.
