Petals in the Dust

Eventbrite - Petals in the Dust

Palo Alto Premier
Followed by panel discussion with filmmaker

Nyna Pais Caputi’s empowering doc examines the condition of an endangered class of people in modern India. They come from all walks of life and share only one common trait: they are female. Women from all economic backgrounds continue to lose their lives to infanticide, sex-selective abortions, starvation and medical neglect, dowry deaths, brutal gang rapes, and more. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be 20 percent more men than women in India! The film explores the cultural origins of this deeply embedded social violence, and profiles both the unimaginable stories of brave survivors, and the inspiring work of activists and gender experts who are helping to change the status quo.
