'Left Out' - a short film on denial of health rights in Karnataka

Over the past few years, I've helped organize meetings and consultations, produced reports and participated in research studies which documented various forms of denial of health rights in India, mainly Karnataka. Recently, while documenting cases for a planned public hearing with the National Human Rights Commission (which was later cancelled), I had the opportunity to collaborate in a project to video-document some testimonies. Thanks to Dipti Desai's persistence, these testimonies have been compiled into a short film 'Left out', which is available on YouTube here.
The stories are from across Karnataka and reveal how hard it continues to be to access health care and to pay for it...
