WIN 2016 PEABODY AWARDS! 

AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME AT 25% OFF

"Udwin's film has increased 
world-wide awareness of attitudes that 
beget sexual violence against women."
                                         - The New York Times



Women Make Movies is honored to announce that INDIA'S DAUGHTER and DON'T TELL ANYONE recently received the prestigious 2016 Peabody Award. One of the most distinguished tributes for excellence in media, the film was selected by a board of jurors comprised of media scholars, industry professionals, journalists, and critics. 

INDIA_S DAUGHTER
Directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker  Leslee UdwinINDIA'S DAUGHTER is the powerfully gripping story of Joyti Singh, a 23 year-old medical student. Singh's promising life was cut short when she was gang raped and murdered while in the company of a male friend. Gaining nearly impossible access to interviews that reveal deeply unsettling views on women and violence, Udwin documents a searing story that helped to galvanize passionate protests for justice within India and world-wide.This compelling, and sometimes controversial film is instrumental for colleges, community groups, and advocates who support victims, provide prevention strategies, and create dialogue that challenge reigning societal attitudes about violence against women. Watch the trailer.

DON_T TELL ANYONE
"Putting a human face on immigration debate... 
Don't Tell Anyone is told through Angy's eloquent voice."
- The Jewish Week, New York


DON'T TELL ANYONE (NO LE DIGAS A NADIE) was helmed by acclaimed director Mikaela Shwer who provides a winning  
DON_T TELL ANYONEportrait of Angy Rivera. Since childhood Rivera has lived with a secret. She is undocumented. With an uncertain future in the US, she begins to push past the boundaries of the fear-laced whisper, "Don't tell anyone." In her world, the phrase carries the threat of deportation back to the violent region that her mother fled years ago. Rivera takes a new courageous stand with her own phrase of empowerment, "undocumented and proud." This thought-provoking film reveals the dignity and agency of undocumented individuals within our communities. DON'T TELL ANYONE

continues to cultivate meaningful discussions that transcend news headlines and soundbites, and gets to the heart of what our national conversation about immigration should be, and potentially could be. Watch the trailer here.
