Writing with Fire

SHOWTIMES

Wed 3/16, 7:00p

Free screening of this Oscar-nominated documentary as part of the Indie Lens Pop-Up series. The event will include an introduction from host and Circle Board Member Gitzel Puente and a post-film community conversation. ASL interpreting will be provided for the intro and panel courtesy THSA, and the film will play with open captioning.

About the film: In a media landscape dominated by men, the women journalists of India’s all-female Khabar Lahariya (“News Wave”) newspaper risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to independent media empire—now with 10 million views on their YouTube site—they defy the odds to redefine power.
