The Sacrifice of Babulal Bhuiya

aka Babulal Bhuiya Ki Qurbani 1987 63’ col Oriya d Manjira Dutta pc Media Workshop c Ranjan Palit

A poetic documentary about the tribals around Bihar’s Mailgora collieries who survive by recycling the pits’ coal slurry. In February 1981, Babulal Bhuiya, one of the workers, was shot dead by the Industrial Security Force. The film goes into the circumstances of his death via covering Communist Party rallies in the area. Much of the story is intercut with painterly shots on the body of an anonymous male worker in the quarry.
