Rejan Gudia

Rejan Gudia was born into conflict. His village was one of those threatened to be submerged by the Koel Karo dam project. His childhood was spent as a participant in the protest marches and sit-ins. At the age of 15 he became a card carrying member of the same popular movement. With his commitment to the cause, he rose in the ranks until he became the chief secretary of the movement which even after four decades, has successfully held off the government and its dubious ‘development’ projects. Rejan believes that his videos document that spirit of his community’s struggle for their rights and identity.
