Renowned Film Maker Jahnu Baruah’s drama ‘ Ajeyo ’  is all set to open the second edition of ‘Matter of Rights’, a two day film festival  by Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative(CHRI) in New Delhi on March 13th .  Ajeyo had been a big hit in the theatres back in 2014 when it was released. It is an Assamese drama which depicts the struggles of an honest, ideal revolutionary youth Gajen Keot who fought against the social evils in rural Assam during the freedom movement in India. The film won the Best Feature Film in Assamese award in the 61st National Film Awards and also won the Best Film award in the 2014 Prag Cine Awards. The festival marks the 25th anniversary in India of CHRI, an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, international non-governmental organisation, which works in the field of human rights in the countries of the commonwealth. To honour Nelson Mandela, the revolutionary South African anti-apartheid leader, the festival will showcase Discovery Channel’s Nelson Mandela to commemorate his centenary.
