Who gets celebrated for a week 300 years after they have gone, and by a foreign nation? A 23 year old German sent to India in 1706 so invested in Tamil people and their culture that he began a social revolution that would free them from slavery, and deliver institutions that serve the democratic state of Tamil Nadu today. India remembers Bartholomaeus Ziegenbalg regularly, and fondly, while the west erased him from memory. Missionaries destroy cultures don't they? Tamil people of Hindu, Muslim, and Christian faith refute that idea - in a film unique for gaining the perspective of those affected by three hundred years of Christian missionaries.
