Film Screening: “The Name of the Disease” with introduction by Filmmakers Abhijit V. Banerjee and Arundhati Tuli Banerjee

Time: 7:00p

Location: 56-114

The documentary “The Name of the Disease” explores the voices of patients, shamans, doctors, and varied health officials in some of the poorest parts of rural Rajasthan, India, to attempt an understanding of the complex and multi-layered narratives of the poor and the sick. The film looks at some of the often conflicting perspectives, and it addresses the questions of daily tragedy and fatalism, tradition and modernity and complacency and rage, as it traces stories that people tell about their lives.

Running time: 50 minutes.

Featuring: Konkona Sen Sharma, National Best Actress Award winner, 2004, India. Filmmakers are Abhijit V. Banerjee, Arundhati Tuli Banerjee, and Bappa Sen.

Filmmakers Abhijit V. Banerjee and Arundhati Tuli Banerjee will introduce the film.

Open to: the general public

Sponsor(s): Center for Bilingual/Bicultural Studies, International Film Club, MIT India Program, GSC Funding Board, Foreign Languages & Literatures, Poverty Action Lab MIT
