60 minutes

Angst at Large, a political documentary, seeks to examine and explore the current chaos in North East India with special reference to Assam. Ravaged by floods every year, Assam for the last two decades in now in the throes of an uncanny kind of crisis. New battle lines are being drawn with an alarming ease and Communities are pitted against each other. Preferences and affiliations are being redefined everyday and average citizen can only experience fear. A working democracy seems to be operating on the surface but a vast majority continues to be mute spectators with drama rife with blood and gore. As rebels fight fro a free Assam, the Indian military has to work overtime to bring them back to the mainstream. The film lets people talk for themselves and seeks a journey to the heart of a region so less known to the outside world.
