This film competed in
2019 Social Political Shorts Film Festival
Director(s): Monalisa Mukherji
The film takes you through the daily life of an impoverished poor woman in a big city, questioning the glamour associated with Women's Day. Amidst the heat, dirt and dust of a metropolis, the struggles of everyday existence of a road side vendor woman hits you hard as we follow her from dawn to dusk. The film, symbolically shot under a city flyover, questions the abject poverty of a developed nation which prides itself on having plastic occasions. The character of a young girl living in open surroundings contrasts sharply our customary obeisance to international notions of womanhood.
