The Screen Guide

More religions coexist in India than in any other country. The murder of an Australian missionary and his two sons by militant Hindus in January 1999 exemplifies the extreme social tensions this can create. But following this tragedy, leaders of more than 60 different faiths came together in a pilgrimage from Delhi to Orissa, the site of the killings, to protest against this religious intolerance. They are part of a wider movement which seeks to return to the religious tolerance espoused in the constitution. DEATH OF A MISSIONARY travels with this influential and charismatic group into the hearts, minds and faiths of modern day India.
