Writing with Fire

Rintu THOMAS Sushmit GHOSH 2021 India Documentary color 94min Hindi DCP
In a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, emerges India's only newspaper run by Dalit women. Armed with smartphones, Chief Reporter Meera and her journalists break traditions and redefine what it means to be powerful. It is the first time modern Dalit women will be seen on screen, not as victims of their circumstances but as writers of their own destiny. As India now stands at the crossroads between secular ethos and radicalisation, the choices they make will define their future as a nation.
