Free Binayak Sen campaigners are screening Anand Patwardhan's "Prisoners Of Conscience", a 1978 documentary on the emergency and the issue of political prisoners, on 30th January at La Makaan. This will be followed by a discussion on the larger implications of this case to Indian democracy through a Q & A session with experts on this subject.

The conviction and sentencing of Dr. Binayak Sen, a well-known pediatrician by a trial court in Raipur last month, has received very little attention in Andhra Pradesh. Through this documentary, Free Binayak Sen campaigners wish to highlight this cause and garner support in pressurising the government in securing his release.

An important historical record of a traumatic period in India's recent political history, Prisoners Of Conscience focuses on the State of Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977. During the Emergency, the media was muzzled, and over 100,000 people were arrested without charge and imprisoned without trial. But political prisoners existed before the Emergency, and they continue to exist even after it is over.

Entry is free for everyone.
