Displacement & Resilience: women live for a new day engages viewers with the experiences of women refugees. This documentary was conceived as a collaboration of women directors based in different countries by its producers, the International Association of Women in Radio and Television or IAWRT, a global organisation of professional women working in media.
The subject was proposed by Chandita Mukherjee, who helmed the production as Executive Producer for the IAWRT. Six collaborating women directors contributed stories about conflict, migration and the experience of exile: Erika Rae Cruz on displaced indigenous people in Philippines; Archana Kapoor and Chandita Mukherjee on Rohingyas from Myanmar in India; Afrah Shafiq on Tibetans in India; Khedija Lemkecher on Syrians in Tunisia; and Eva Anandi Brownstein on Syrians in Canada.
Their stories have been woven together to create a multi-layered viewing experience on the global refugee crisis. Combining principal photography with interviews, archival footage, graphics and mixed media, the film presents an overview of particular issues bringing out similarities in the lives of women refugees, exiled and displaced for a variety of reasons.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion.
Admission on a first-come-first-served basis. NCPA Members will get preferential seating till 6:20 pm.
