Filmmaker Sanjay Patel’s upcoming film Union Leader , is the first Indo-Canadian collaboration and is slated to release in cinemas across India on 19 January, 2018. 

Union Leader features a stellar cast comprised of Rahul Bhat (of Ugly fame), Tillotama Shome (of Monsoon Wedding, A Death in the Gunj fame). The story of Union Leader is inspired from real life events that filmmaker Sanjay Patel experienced as he worked as an engineer in chemical plants in India. The plight of the workers trapped in an endless cycle of abuse and generational poverty as they become victims of the poor health and safety standards in Indian factories.

Resigned to his fate as a worker in a notoriously shoddy chemical plant, Jay wants little more than for his wife and son to escape their life of poverty but soon he realizes that he must not only find a way to support his family, but also overcome grave social and legal injustice in the system.

Union Leader has garnered positive reviews and acclaims across significant film festivals around the world, including 17th Kansas International Film Festival, 24th CineSol Film Festival and 51st HOF International Film Festival to name a few.  Union Leader is an Indo-Canadian co-production by Dim Light Pictures.
