Indian Documentary Nominated For Oscars 2019: Speaking about the documentary, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said it will inspire young people to stay in their villages and work for their communities.

 

DEHRADUN: Moti Bagh, a documentary film based on the struggle of a farmer in a remote Himalayan village, has been nominated for the Oscars, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said on Tuesday.
The chief minister congratulated the director, Nirmal Chander Dandriyal, and said the film is based on the life of Vidyadutt, a farmer living in the state's Pauri Garhwal region.
 
The film, Mr Rawat said, will inspire young people to stay in their villages and work for their communities. "It will help stop migrations from remote areas," he said.
