WRITING WITH FIRE

Synopsis

In a male-dominated media landscape, India's only newspaper run by Dalit women is starting out. Armed with smartphones, these journalists break with tradition - whether on the frontlines of India's biggest problems or in their own homes. A film about fearless journalists who, in the face of hostile patriarchy and the rise of the right, have recognized the impactful power of investigative journalism.

Followed by: Discussion with Priya Thuvassery (Director at Chambal Media, digital media enterprise that runs and manages Khabar Lahariya)

Moderated by Javier Luque Martinez (IPI)
