Summary
"Hidden Apartheid: A Report on Caste Discrimination" provides an in-depth history and analysis of caste-based discrimination. Since the early 1900s, Indians have migrated across the world, seeking freedom from caste-based inequality, only to discover in the last few decades that the very practices they escaped have resurfaced in their new homelands. Caste discrimination outside India has been reported in community centers, places of worship, workplaces, educational and political institutions, restaurants, public transportation, and in matrimonial columns. This film illustrates how casteism originated in Indian society, and how caste segregation was systemic, until the Constitution of India made it unlawful. However, political democracy has not translated into social democracy; casteism and "untouchability" have remained, and are practiced in every country where Indians have settled. Filmed over 4 years, this human rights documentary uses interviews to uncover ongoing caste conflicts in the UK, the US, New Zealand, and Australia, and the current legal efforts to end these discriminatory practices once and for all. Caste discrimination is a human rights violation that receives very little attention by non-Indians, because the alternative stories of India's poor have been historically hidden. This film shines a spotlight on these injustices that need to be confronted urgently by the wider world
