      In a politically polarized world, universal ideals are rare. In India as in many regions, the vacuum is filled by religious bigotry. Minorities are scapegoats of every calamity as nations sub-divide into religious and ethnic zones, each seemingly eager to annihilate the other or extinguish itself on the altar of martyrdom.


      explores in two parts the possibility that the psychology of violence against "the other" may lie in male insecurity, itself an inevitable product of the very construction of "manhood."

      "Rampant machismo is never a pretty sight and this two-part video contains a lot of excruciating imagery and some brutal truths: these are not pretty pictures...for showing to courses on current Indian politics, on religion and ethnicity, on women's issues, the sociology of violence or popular culture; Father, Son and Holy War is powerful stuff but the faint of heart should be forewarned of its harrowing content" - Gail Minault, Journal of Asian Studies

      "Anand Patwardhan's impressive, passionate documentary explores in great detail the roots of sectarian violence in Indian today. A natural for cutting edge TV docu slots, the film, which is extremely well researched and assembled, should also be widely seen at upcoming feasts." - David Statton, Variety

      "In his understanding of the sexual politics of resurgent Hindu communalism, Patwardhan remains India's most astute and daring documentary filmmaker and one of the country's most sensitive commentators."
