NYWIFT Co-Presents: Breaking Barriers, Sharing Stories: The New Indian Women Filmmakers

*FREE*

New York Women in Film & TelevisionNew York Indian Film Festival, and Manhattan Neighborhood Network are pleased to present a panel discussion that highlights the emergence of Indian women documentary filmmakers in recent years. This event aims to explore the unique non-fiction narratives that these filmmakers are sharing with the world, as well as the challenges they face in the industry.

As we have witnessed, there has been a remarkable emergence of Indian documentaries at international film festivals, with three Indian documentaries being nominated for the Academy Awards in 2021 and 2022, and one winning an Oscar this year. Many of these documentaries have been made by women filmmakers, including The Elephant Whisperers, A Night of Knowing Nothing, Writing With Fire, The Bengali, To Kill a Tiger, Against the Tide and And, Towards Happy Alleys.

These talented women are breaking barriers and bringing a unique perspective to the field of documentary filmmaking. Through their work, they are shedding light on diverse and underrepresented stories from India and around the world. However, despite their achievements, they often face challenges in funding, distribution, and recognition.

Join us as we hear from some of the most prominent Indian women documentary filmmakers, as they share their experiences and insights. We hope this panel will inspire and empower all those who are interested in the world of documentary filmmaking, particularly women filmmakers.

Speakers include Bedatri D. Choudhury, Kavery Kaul, and Nisha Pahuja.
Moderated by NYWIFT Board Member, Shruti Ganguly.

CHILE '76

A Film By Manuela Martelli

Opening on May 5th
at Film at Lincoln Center and IFC Films in NYC

Chilean filmmaker, Manuela Martelli, makes her feature film debut as she presents Chile '76. This film follows Carmen (Aline Kuppenheim), a 49-year-old woman whose life as a bourgeois housewife is interrupted when the priest at the church where she does charity work asks her to take care of a young revolutionary, a man he is giving asylum to. Hailed as an “invaluable demonstration of revolutionary feminine cinema” (Little White Lies), Chile '76 is an exposé of Chilean life under the suffocating dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet as seen through the lens of a singular woman.
