Dalits have faced caste oppression in India for more than 2,000 years. In 1997 police opened fire on unarmed Dalits killing 10. Vilas Ghogre, a leftist poet and singer, hanged himself in protest. Shot over 14 years, the meticulous "Jai Bhim Comrade" follows the music and the tradition of reason that Vilas had been a part of.
