Pariah is a riveting dystopian drama about the effects of the arrival of an outsider in a seemingly idyllic community. The story begins with a young man emerging from a forest and reaching a nearby village for food and shelter, only to be met with hostility and suspicion. As the story progresses, the protagonist is subject to increasing abuse and violence, as a religion-fuelled paranoia spreads around the villagers. This thought-provoking debut feature by writer-director Riddhi Majumder is a reflection on the difficulties of human coexistence and the effect of political and religious propaganda on the masses.
