Roll.Take.Turn. is the annual documentary film screening organized by the Dept. of Mass Media, where third year students showcase the documentaries they make each year, as a part of their Contemporary Issues Curriculum. The students select contemporary issues from different parts of India and then conceptualize, research, shoot, edit and then finally screen the films. There is a lot of planning, hard work, dedication and professionalism involved in making and executing these movies.
Roll.Take.Turn. 2016 showcased ten films, of approximately 15 minutes each. This year’s issues ranged from Malnutrition amongst children in rural Maharashtra, the beef ban in the state, the demand for One Rank One pension by the ex-servicemen of Armed Forces, the LGBT community, the issue of Tibetan refugees in India, the issue of Senicide in Tamil Nadu, the facts and matters involved in Khap Panchayats, the problem of marital rape, ‘Baal diksha’ among the Jain community and last but not the least the issue of Uniform Civil Code.
Every year, media experts and industry professionals witness and critically evaluate the movies. This year’s members were Meghna Pant, Kunal Purohit, Akash Motiani and Sarosh Sidhwa.
