‘I… am a woman’ in Women’s Voices Now Festival

(2008) A radical, Karachi-based theater group (Tehrik-e-Niswan), is storming the streets of Pakistan with its plays on issues such as education, forced marriages and honor killings. Challenging social norms and facing acute opposition, this group, led by a headstrong and rebellious woman, Sheema Kermani, is focused in its purpose of creating awareness and fighting for women’s equal rights. The documentary showcases the work of this theater group in light of the social and historical framework of Pakistan; assesses its impact on the lives of ordinary women and also highlights the personal struggles of some of the theater actors themselves.

Please watch and vote for my film. The more votes I get, the better are my chances of going to LA for the actual festival. Comments are more than welcome. Also, please share the film with your friends and family.
