About the Talk

The effects of films and media on society have attracted a lot of attention in the last few years. It is important that audiences are sensitized to develop a strong sense of ethics so that they can make informed choices about cultural products. But by their very nature, populist media products are more attractive than ethically nuanced ones. This makes the task of sensitization a very challenging one.

Join noted filmmaker Jahnu Barua for his perspectives on how we can create a climate in which films and media products are examined through the lens of ethics.
