Opening Gala night, Fri 25 June, screening 7pm: WOMB (Women Of My Billion) + Q&A with Srishti Bakshi
A young woman named Srishti Bakshi embarks on a monumental journey – walking almost 3800km over 240 days, from Kanyakumari in the south to Kashmir in the North, along the way meeting and learning first hand about the experiences of many women from all corners of India.
WOMB is a poignant and heart warming documentary exploring the social and political issues faced by women of today’s India. It’s also a unique testament to seemingly insurmountable challenges in these unprecedented times and the everyday ‘sheroes’ who are battling to overcome them.
