The Film:
Animal sacrifice goes unabated in some parts of India despite globalization and modern lifestyles. The animation short film The Farmer & His Goat is a sincere attempt at discouraging the evil practice in the best way possible – by creating a hypothetical situation where man himself becomes the victim of sacrifice at the hands of the very animal which he has been slaughtering in the name of religion for centuries now-RajaSekhar Buggaveeti

Creative Team:
Govind Rajeswar, Sachin Punde & Parag Warade
