Kinara ('The Edge')

VAT2019 N 063
Synopsis 'Kinara' aims to highlight the human-tiger conflict in the reserve forest areas of India. Intended primarily to sensitize locals actually living with the problem, the film seeks to, in as simple and stark a manner as possible, show tigers as living, loving creatures who deserve our protection and empathy. The film aimed to educate the viewer about the progression of events, largely human-led, which result in the often misunderstood violence that the tigers are forced to resort to. The story unfolds around a family of tigers suffer the consequences of increased intrusions into the forest by the human communities living on the edge of the Tadoba tiger reserve.
