Students For Liberty South Asia is organising an E-Samvad on the Movie “Dallas Buyers Club” on 21 November 2020.
What is an E-Samvaad?
Samvad originates from the Sanskrit word संवाद (saṃvāda) which means Dialogue, Discourse or Collocution. It is a space where you can put your thoughts and ideas in front of an audience which is willing to hear, reciprocate, and contemplate and understand issues from diverse perspectives.
About this E-Samvad
AIDS, Homophobia, Drug Control, Prohibition, Immunodeficiency, Deaths…. Sounds Familiar? Could be. Sounds archaic? May be!
Let’s travel back to as recent as the 1980s with Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in the Biographical Drama “Dallas Buyers Club”, to understand the statist regime rampant with drug control, mutilated human trials, favours to corporate lobbyists, deprivation of essential medicines, and making life a matter of trial and error.
Let us also explore this world portrayed by the movie through the E-Saamvad with the perspective of a 21st-century dweller and find answers to the pertinent concerns regarding AIDS, Drugs and State Control, as they exist today.
Date: 21 November 2020
Time: 6:00- 8:00 pm IST
