Event Description

79 mins | 2021 | Hindi, English, Marathi with English Subtitles | India, Germany “What makes you angry?” asks the filmmaker. A small film crew enters the ladies’ compartments of the local trains in Mumbai. Chance encounters and acquaintances are invited to reveal their opinions, their confessions and their stories in a ‘public’ space. Their diverse answers thread themselves into an unfolding tapestry of details and observations. The light on the faces, the figures in the background, the driving noises of the train and the interactions between the travellers bring the space alive. Black and white images distil the essence of the space. A poetic rhythm takes us across Mumbai and it’s mix of cultures, languages and faces, providing insight into how urban Indian women see and shape their lives. Through a feminist lens, the filmmaker explores what ambitions and freedoms mean for women in a hyper-industrial, wealth-driven and complex world. The filmmaker will engage in a conversation with Sandhya Kumar after the screening, which will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
