I am 20

India, 1967 (MIFF 1969, Programme 21)

Director: S. N. S. Sastry

August 15, 1947. Independence Day for India. How many children were born in that teeming country on that day alone? No one can know; but certainly more than the thousands of people who died. Here a mere handful of those who reached the age of twenty have been imaginatively interviewed till they talked spontaneously about their hopes and ambitions, their problems. frustrations, opinions. Critics Award, Cracow.
