Film Launch: “Rails, Jails & Trolleys” A Documentary on the Indian Farmers’ Protest

We are proud and excited to launch a new documentary on the historic Farmers’ Movement in India from 2021-2022. We cordially invite you to join us at the premier launch of the film.

Rails, Jails and Trolleys documents history’s largest farmers’ protest and the Canadian diaspora’s response to it. This ground-breaking documentary captures the electric ethos of a protest that received international attention and the resounding response by Canadians to the movement. A full year in the making the film tells the story of why and how the farmers’ movement ignited a nation, and youth, women, and men from all over the world.
