Don't Worry About India


Directed by Nama Film Collective | Germany/Switzerland/India | 2022 | 98 min.


In this charmingly made film, a young Indian filmmaker, who has been living in Europe for many years, returns to India to document the 2019 election. As he moves around the country, his footage reveals the fundamental flaws and fissures in India’s majoritarian version of democracy, as well as the vast economic gulf that separates him and his privileged family from those he interviews. And so, what begins as a somewhat naively enthusiastic celebration of his homeland briskly, transforms into a more critical take on things, as it is revealed that Gandhi’s vision of a democratic, pluralist and secular India is in the process of being rapidly reversed by Narendra Modi and his Hindu-nationalist BJP party.
