"Death Certificate"--A relevant, regional language film by Rajaditya Banerjee sets foot at the International Film Festivals.

"Death Certificate" is the Debut Feature Film of Rajaditya Banerjee. It deals with a very relevant issue of the struggles in any backward minority community in India.

The story revolves around the life of a tribal woman and her search for her missing husband, who serves water to thirsty passengers at a small railway station in eastern India. As she embarks on this unknown journey, she faces the cruel, corruption in the bureaucracy and tries to come in terms with her own personal loss. The film raises the pertinent question of human values or the lack of it in today's society. We may have globalized technology, but when do we globalize humanity?
