Standing up: The case of the National Anthem
Click below to watch:
The video addresses the Supreme Court order passed in December 2016 to mandate respect to India’s national anthem. The ruling that all persons be forced to stand in
movie theaters when the national anthem is broadcast before film screenings is patently absurd when it disregards the differences in ability or citizenship. By examining theories around the
state and political citizenship the artists attempt an activist intervention through this video of the very idea of patriotism.
