|Filmmaker/s Bio Note/s||Biju graduated from St Xavier’s College, Ranchi, and then completed the Film Appreciation Course at FTII. He has made over fifteen documentaries on issues of water, forest, land, displacement, migration, health, education, environment, art and culture, under the aegis of his company, Akhra. His film Kora Rajee that dealt with the issue of adivasi labourers in the tea gardens of Assam and Bengal, won the Silver Conch at Mumbai International Film Festival. He also won the National Film Award for his film Loha Garam Hai.|
The Film explores the condition of human rights in the Naxal affected areas of Jharkhand, Chattisgarh and Orissa. These areas are rich in mineral resources as well as tribal population where Central and the State Governments have already signed MoUs with various national and multinational companies. The Film questions the thoughtless rapid development model of the Government where lives of millions of people in these areas are severely affected.
