First Konkani animation film focuses on Goa environment

Finally a film about Goa and in the Konkani language. Although it is an animation film, it will still address the issues of the environment surrounding the state of Goa. Here is an excerpt of the article.

"Groundwater contamination, mega residential projects, killing of frogs for meat - all this and more find voice in the first ever Konkani animation film 'Saimakaden Samvad' that focuses on environmental degradation in the coastal state of Goa, famous for its beaches.

Directed and scripted by Rajshree Bandodkar Karapurkar, a physics lecturer and Konkani sci-fi writer, the 20-minute short animation film echoes the intensified contemporary tussle between nature and rampant unplanned development, which has been the cause of prolonged civil unrest in Goa of late."
