UNTOUCHABLE cover image
This documentary examines the untouchables in India, a caste of people who are not considered human, particularly the Dalit, who are the lowest domination of the untouchables. It talks about what the Dalit Network, a local organization that is trying to fix the problem by educating the new generation of untouchables. The culture is explained in simple and easy-to-understand terms. Teens would enjoy this documentary because it doesn't have an educational tone yet is very informative. It is well constructed with a mix of interviews and footage of the Dalit people in their living conditions. The production value is pretty good with good audio and video quality. At times the camerawork is a bit shaky. To a youth audience, it offers insight into a culture they are most likely not familiar with.
Illuminates the condition of Dalits (or Untouchables) - outcast from society in India - and denied basic human rights.
