Synopsis

This short improvised fiction film is affectionately called Yugantar’s ‘hit’ film. In the midst of the very active autonomous women’s movement in India, Yugantar collaborated with the research and feminist activist collective Stree Shakhti Sanghatana, provoked by an urgency to broaden discourses and political practice on domestic violence. Through an intense period of a consciousness raising style sharing of their own varied and multi-layered experiences of domestic violence, members of both collectives created a script that focuses on isolation and depression while also developing a complex female character in the process of articulating her situation and finding support in female friendship.

Sinopsis

Ova kratka improvizirana filmska fikcija je iz dragosti prozvana Yugantarovim hit filmom. U jeku izuzetno aktivnog autonomnog ženskog pokreta u Indiji, Yugantar sarađuje sa feminističkom aktivisticom-istraživačicom Stree Shakhti Sanghatana, potaknut važnošću širenja diskursa i političkih praksi u kontekstu porodičnog nasilja. Tokom intenzivnog perioda podizanja svijesti i dijeljenja vlastitih, različitih i višeslojnih iskustava porodičnog nasilja, članice oba kolektiva izrađuju scenarij u čijem su fokusu usamljenost i depresija, istovremeno razvijajući lik složene protagonistkinje u procesu artikulisanja vlastite situacije, ali i nalaženja podrške u ženskom prijateljstvu.
