To Die For Land – The Ultimate Sacrifice

English (subtitled), 29 min, 2003, India

The film captures the adivasi land struggle in Chengara, Kerala. Located in Patnamthitta district, Chengara is witness to the occupation by 20000 adivasis of over 2000 acres of land belonging to Harrison Malayalam Company Ltd. For the adivasis who took over this commercial tea plantation land, the occupation is a defiant way to highlight their situation. Over the years, plantation companies with the active support of the government have ensured that the adivasis are now alienated from land that they once called their homes.
