About the film: Final Solution is a study of the politics of hate. Set in Gujarat during the period February-March 2002 and July 2003, the film graphically documents the changing face of right-wing politics in India through an examination of the carnage wrought on Gujarat in 2002. The pogrom against Muslims took place while Narendra Modi was chief minister of Gujarat. This film examines political tendencies reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the early/mid-1930s.
Cosponsored by the Department of English
