Short Film: "The Little Terrorist"

Via Chapati Mystery, a fifteen minute short film called "The Little Terrorist," which was nominated for an Oscar for best short in 2005. If you have fifteen minutes, you can watch it here (the first 30 seconds or so are black; be patient):

The video appears to have been posted by the production company itself, so you can watch in good conscience. According to the film's website, it was filmed on location in a rural village in Rajasthan on a shoe-string budget.

Also, you may want to go straight to to view it on a slightly larger screen (especially if you want to read the subtitles).

One minor question to consider might be: what dialect are the villagers speaking? Would we simply call it "Rajasthani"?
