Movie Screening: “Gulabi Gang” 8th of March

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 @ 18:30 - 20:30

The Event Committee in co-operation with Cinema Politica welcomes you to the screening of the awarded documentary “Gulabi Gang” for International Women’s Day.

 

In Bundelkhand, India, a revolution is in the making among the poorest of the poor, as Sampat Pal Devi and the fiery women of her Gulabi Gang empower themselves and take up the fight against gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption. They want to change the unchangeable with an organised social action and unification. It’s a picture of rural India and a story about the underprivileged, and especially a story of Indian women. Gulabi Gang has won several national and international awards including Best Documentary in 2013 from IAWRT (International Association of Women in Radio and Television) and Best Film MuhrAsia Documentary at the Dubai International Film Festival.
