Writing With Fire
Into 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 on the frontlines of India’s biggest issues and within the confines of their own homes, redefining what it means to be powerful.
Armed with smartphones and courage, they investigate the incompetence of the local police force, listen to and stand by victims of caste and gender violence, and challenge long-standing, harmful practices that lead to injustice and intimidation.
This documentary contains discussion of sexual violence.
Director: Rintu Thomas, Sushmit Ghosh
Producers: Rintu Thomas, Sushmit Ghosh
