Shot between 1997 and 2001, Sangharsh takes us deep into the lifeworld of Dalit Panther activists in the late 1990s Uttar Pradesh. By following three activists, one is taken on a rough trip in the slums and villages of Kanpur region, where these characters are spreading the revolutionary messages of Ambedkar. It is an emotional journey into the urge to struggle in order to assert one’s humanity, when humiliation, exploitation and violence remain always around the corner.
