Join New York University's Center for Media Culture and History for a screening of In God's Land followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Pankaj Rishi Kumar. Set in India, the film focuses on a dispute between tenant farmers, redevelopers, and the clergy who own the properties in a village where a mythical god is born. Using animation to recount the history of the land, the film satirizes the exploitation perpetuated by religion and class distinction and looks at land within the larger issue of development, juxtaposing the promises of economic prosperity with the real-life hardships brought on by development.
