“A must see for all those concerned with contemporary Indian politics and the dangerous contemporary rise of Hindu nationalism. Shot with extraordinary lucidity, but also with great compassion for the victims’ families, this movie is a powerful investigation into the social and political roots of violence, and a forceful invitation never to forget the fight against social injustice.” – Dr Alessandra Mezzadri, Lecturer in Development Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies

“This documentary is as much a personal exploration of the violence that has ripped apart their [the filmmakers’] homeland as it is a journalistic endeavour to understand the politics and religion of India […] The documentary provides an important antidote to such sanitised coverage on the potential Prime Minister who is accused not simply of inaction, but complicity in the planning and orchestrating the violence […] Even The Crows is a must-watch for those wishing to understand modern India and how the changing political landscape might affect the country’s future.”- On Religion, 2014 Read full review here
