[from rakeshfilm.com]: Set in Gujarat in 2002-2003, the Final Solution documents the changing face of right-wing politics in India through a study of the 2002 genocide of the Muslim community in Gujarat. Final Solution was banned in India by the Censor Board for several months. The ban was lifted in October 2004 after a sustained campaign (an online petition, hundreds of protest screenings countrywide, multi-city signature campaigns, and dozens of letters to the government).
following the film will be a Q & A featuring Drs. Cabeiri Robinson and Dan Chirot from the jackson school. more on facebook.
