মাতৃভূমির খোঁজে (In Search of Motherland) is a documentary on the Gorkhaland movement the shook the mountains of North Bengal (north of West Bengal), India. Ever since the independence of India the Gorkhas of the hills of Bengal have been demanding a state of their own, a place to call their motherland.
Much blood have been shed on the issue and most recently, since late 2007, the movement has resurfaced under the newly formed Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha.
Canvas tries to trace the brief history of the region and the long pending demand of the Gorkhas of their right to self determination.
