This documentary tells the gripping and inspiring story of a group of Dalit women (of the lowest caste in India’s social hierarchy), who against all odds run their own news organisation and publish a newspaper. Armed with pens and smartphones, they search out stories that might contribute to giving a voice to the most vulnerable members of society. New aspiring journalists are trained and sent into the field, and are listened to by millions in spite of their low social status. This astonishing documentary has won awards everywhere from Al-Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival to Belfast Film Festival, and is no less interesting considering the recent announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize to journalists who are fighting for freedom of speech.
