Thus the centre has decided to propel the knowledge to common mass through a film festival where different films will be displayed on various topics relating to human rights. The films that will be shown in the next few days would be on social issues like employment, effects of urbanisation, gender bias etc. A documentary was shown on the first day of the festival relating to employment in call centres, in which a different world of call centre employees was shown. Many people work in call centres just because they get well paid even if their aspirations are different. Choosing a right career is the basic human right, which was the message of the movie. Similarly, films based on other social issues will be screened in the next 5 days. With cameraperson Vinayak Dalvi, Vrushali Chitre for NMTV news.
