Gulabi Gang

Nov 9, 2013 @ 3:30 pm

Filmmaker in Person!
Nishtha Jain (City of Photos, Lakshmi and Me) returns to the Bay Area with this thriller disguised as a documentary! In Bundelkhand, India, a revolution is in the making as the fiery women of the Gulabi Gang take up the fight against gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption. Undeterred by sneering policemen and condescending bureaucrats, founder Sampat Pal leads the pink sari-clad women on a remarkable, and impressive crusade for truth and justice. Watching this documentary makes one want to redefine the term “heroine” in Indian films!
