Tribal displacement and the issues concerning Talaguppa and HD Kote tribes is the core subject of debutant director Ninasam Manju's debut project Kanneri. The title means a new season.
The life of tribals, the way they live in the forest and the change once they are displaced and what they undergo has been strung together in the screenplay.
The artists underwent a one-month training at a tribal camp to get a feel of the character they play.
The film was shot in the deep forest at Talaguppa near Shivamogga and HD Kote in Hassan and other parts of Karnataka.
Kari Subbu who played a killer in Dandupalaya has been roped in to play an important character.
Newcomer Archana Madhusadan plays a female protagonist in the film. The film is all set to release in November this year.
