Union Leader is an upcoming drama directed by Sanjay Patel starring Rahul Bhat and Tillotama Shome. The film’s original title was Kamdar Union and it has been changed to Union Leader during the post production.
A Hindi-language film directed and produced by Fort McMurray filmmaker Sanjay Patel is set to appear at film festivals around the world in the coming months.
The film, Union Leader, tells the story of workers in a chemical plant in India, who are sick or dying from exposure to chromium sulfate. The protagonist, Jay, turns a blind eye to these conditions for fear of losing his job, but is eventually forced to fight for the health and safety of his colleagues by creating a new union.
Patel, 44, a process manager at Suncor, has never formally studied filmmaking. However, he said he has done extensive research on the topic on his own.
The first film he directed and produced was a short work called If You Love Your Children. It told the story of a man in the energy industry struggling to publish a book about climate change. Completed in 2014, it was shown at dozens of film festivals, such as the Urban Mediamakers Film Festival in Norcross, Ga., and the International Independent Film Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. It won more than a dozen awards.
