Yamagata Rough Cut!

To Die A Frenchman

Director: Pankaj Rishi Kumar


Living in Pondicherry (India), Monsieur Mounissamy, 70, wears his French identity on his sleeve. Mounissamy has a deep understanding of French politics, history and culture, and firmly believes that only if people knew their history, they could fight for their rights. He has made it his life's goal to fight for the restoration of his citizenship from France. He also aspires for a plot of land from India. His life and untimely death compel serious reflection on postcolonial histories, complex identities, and the struggles of an individual against systemic injustice.
