String of Stories

a film by Indrani Nayar-Gall (72 minutes) presents the ordeals of three women who have been victims of the Devadasi tradition. The nonlinear treatment of the film provides a glimpse into the insidious ways in which the system works, especially how it has ruined their lives. These women, who hail from the least privileged sections of society, have been sacrificed at the altar of this illegal practice. Scarred by their experiences, they find themselves stripped of the fundamental rights to safety and education. Will they be able to rise above it and turn their lives around?

Dreaming In Green

a film by Leena Jayaswal (in collaboration with Monica Jahan Bose) about the Storytelling with Saris

ecofeminist art project. Commissioned by the Smithsonian for the Futures exhibition (3:43 minutes)
