Gulabi GangGulabi Gang, by Nishtha Jain (96’)

Enter the badlands of Bundelkhand in central India and you have entered a place of desolation, dust and despair. And yet it is hope that we discover as we follow the pink sari-clad women of Gulabi Gang. They travel long distances to wrest justice for women and Dalits, undeterred by sneering policemen and condescending bureaucrats. Sampat Pal, their leader is a rough-and-tough woman with a commanding personality. The gang encounters resistance everywhere – whole villages connive in protecting the perpetrators of violence…

Followed by an interaction with the film maker.
