Hello! My name is Suvam Ghimire and I am a filmmaker from Assam.
I have been documenting people who are suffering with Intellectual Disability (ID).
ID is a lifelong condition characterized by significant impairment of cognitive and adaptive development owing to abnormalities of brain structure or function.
There is almost zero awareness about Intellectual Disability in our country and this Documentary Film is intended to educate the masses about this condition.
I have already shot 80% of the film at my own expense. But due to the Pandemic, not only did the shooting of this film come to a halt but so did all my other works which gradually dried up all my savings.
The money received from this donation would be used to complete the rest of the shoot and fund the post-production process.
During my research and field work, I discovered that very little is known about Intellectual Disability and its spectrum in general. People with ID are often neglected, mistreated and deemed as mad. They don't get the help and medical attention they need.
In India, ID is always associated with past-life karma and the victims are mostly out-casted instead of receiving any treatment.
In rural India, parents lack the knowledge of care and treatment for their children with Intellectual Disability. This Documentary Film focuses on finding the answers to many such questions and help people understand the correct way to approach and treat people with this condition.
