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.

Creative Team:
Govind Rajeswar, Sachin Punde & Parag Warade
