Kavi is an award-winning, Oscar-nominated short feature film available in the UK through Dalit Freedom Network.
Kavi is about a young boy in India who wants to play cricket and go to school, but instead he is forced to work in a brick-kiln as a modern-day slave. Dissatisfied with his fate, Kavi must either accept what he's always been told, or fight for a different life even if he's unsure of the ultimate outcome.
Kavi gives an insight into the reality of life for millions of Dalit children in bonded labour in India today.
"Kavi tugs at the heartstrings" (Entertainment Weekly)
"Remarkably incisive and moving" (The Los Angeles Times)
