WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Vijay Tendulkar's frightening masterpiece, Sakharam Binder, is the story of a bookbinder who, standing by his own subversive moral code, gives shelter to castoff and homeless women expecting servitude and sexual favors in exchange. This modern Indian classic, originally banned in the subcontinent and rarely seen in the United States, depicts a violent struggle between the sexes as desires and hopes succumb to the weight of a disillusioned people promised equality by Independence. Sakharam Binder is a testament to the invincible strength we muster in the face of unthinkable adversity, and the ferocity with which we fight for a better life.
