WRITING WITH FIRE
NYC Premiere: For centuries, Dalits, deemed untouchable within Hinduism’s caste hierarchy, have been denied access to education. Amidst rising Hindu nationalism, Dalit women fight the double-edged sword of caste and patriarchy as they manage Khabar Lahariya, India’s only newspaper run by women. Described as a “rousing and inspirational tribute” by Variety, Writing with Fire traverses the inner and outer lives of the journalists, and is a celebration of the immense courage with which the women take to their pens. – Bedatri Choudhury
