A Simple Guide to Coal Mining (Satirical film for Amnesty International)

A short animated film on coal mining in India and its repercussions, made as part of Amnesty International India’s campaign “When Land is Lost, Do We Eat Coal?”

Made using research from the Cost Of Coal report by Aruna Chandrashekar from Amnesty International India, this project uses sped up visuals to satirise the speed at which development takes place in India, and the confusion and devastation caused to those whose land is acquired for this purpose. This Simple Guide to Coal Mining in India shows what affected communities face when their land is taken from them for coal mining in the ‘national interest’.
