Film: Tales from the Margins

A Film by Kavita Joshi (23 mins / Subtitled in English): Now Screening Online!

12 women disrobe in public – in protest against the custodial killing of a woman. A young woman – Irom Sharmila – has been on a fast-to-death for over 6 years, demanding the removal of a brutal law from her land.

Why are these women using their bodies as their last weapon?

The film looks at the grim human rights situation in Manipur (in northeast India) and the extraordinary protests by its women for justice and peace; and against the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).

Watch the film online! at the online film festival of International Museum of Women, from 19th to 31st October 2007

Tales from the Margins won a Special Jury Mention at the Medias Nord Sud 2007 Geneva and Silver Remi at WorldFest Houston 2007.

It was screened at the World Social Forum India 2006; DOK.Fest Munich 2007; MadCat San Francisco 2007; Film South Asia 2007, Kathmandu; DOK Leipzig 2007
