About Writing with Fire , now an Academy Award nominee for best documentary.
In a male-dominated media landscape, the women journalists of India’s all-female Khabar Lahariya (“News Wave”) newspaper risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to independent media empire—now with 10 million views on their YouTube site—they defy the odds to redefine power.
A film by by Rintu Thomas and Sushmit Ghosh.
This one-hour screening will be followed immediately by a live talkback with Snehal Batra and David Nachman of NPZ Law Group, moderated by Sandi Klein. This screening is sponsored locally by NPZ Law Group.
Film screenings are free but registration is required.
