Ti Chalat Rahili. She Kept Walking.

Amhi Savitricha Leki. We are Daughters of Savitri

SYNOPSIS

 

A collection of 4 new music videos that give voice to struggles against the timeless power of brahmanical patriarchy. Devoted to all who have lost their lives in the struggles against violence and hate, they express solidarity with peoples' movements for social justice, dignity and human rights. These are songs of anger, distress, empathy, perseverance, determination and rebellion that bear testimony to the injustices against Dalits, adivasis and other marginalised peoples. Songs that dream of a new society based on equality, liberty, justice and sisterhood.

 

Amhi Savitricha Leki (We're the Daughters of Savitri), a tribute to Savitri Bai Phule by her 'daughters' who continue the fight for Dalit women's rights.

Ti Chalat Rahili (She Kept Walking) confronts manuvaad, brahmanism and patriarchy rooted in the society and the resistance of the Dalit community.

O Asifa remembers Asifa, a young nomadic Kashmiri muslim girl subjected to unspeakable sexual violence, torture and death in the name of upper caste religious privilege. Forthcoming.


Tu Tod Behana (Break it, Sisters!) hails the feminist spirit that inspires movements through generations of struggle, sacrifice, solidarity and victories. Forthcoming.
