She's My Girl

Haryana's alarmingly disproportional sex ratio from discrimination against the girl child has brought together a motley group of budding wirters, singers, actors, and organisers to resolve this problem. They perform in community theaters or jathas with a single purpose: to motive communities to value their daughters. Civil society and women's groups, youth, and people's science forums have scripted their own experiences against the backdrop of the bitter reality of misogyny in Haryana, India. The group's current play: Ek nai shuruaat, is being performed in schools, street corners, village mohallas, and unusual places such as railway platforms, in order to bring this issue up for discussion.

Calcutta

"When he was cutting PHANTOM INDIA, Louis Malle found that the footage shot in CALCUTTA was so diverse, intense, and unforgettable that it deserved its own film. The result, released theatrically, is at times shocking - a chaotic portrait of a city racked with social and political turmoil" -- Container.
