Voices of Bhil tribals from the semi-arid forest, Rajasthan, India. A short documentary film that brings the voices of the marginalised scheduled tribes to express the complexities of India's decentralisation and forest tenure reform. The story told through the voices of Bhil people (men and women) provides further insights on the issues of institutional pluralism, citizenship, forestry, governance, participation and the challenges of access to land and the forest.
