Gulabi Gang, a multi-award winning feature documentary directed by Nishtha Jain, will release in India on February 21, 2014 via PVR Cinemas. The film is being presented by Sohum Shah, actor-producer of Recyclewala Films, who also produced Ship of Theseus.
Gulabi Gang was produced by Oscar and Emmy nominated producers Torstein Grude and Signe Sorenson of the The Act of Killing fame.
The film has travelled to over forty international festivals and has won several awards including the Best Film at Dubai International Film Festival and Amnesty International Awards for Human Rights in South Africa and Poland.
Gulabi Gang looks closely at a grassroot women’s movement in Bundelkhand, central India, which is now eight years old and boasts of 400,000 female members. They tirelessly crusade against gender violence, caste discrimination and bureaucratic corruption. The film which unravels like a thriller looks at the interventions, victories as well as challenges Gulabi Gang faces in a bid to bring about social change.
