“Mudri Zhinky….Wise Women”—a specially curated package of films from Ukraine made by women filmmakers

IAWRT India chapter presents “Mudri Zhinky….Wise Women,”a festival of films by women filmmakers from Ukraine.

The festival has been curated by IAWRT India member Smriti Nevatia who has put in a lot of hard work, time and energy in finding and selecting these films.

Some of these films are part of a larger package “FemaleVoicesUA” and the day-long festival will be on September 03, 2-8 pm, at the C. D. Deshmukh Auditorium, India International Centre (IIC) in New Delhi.

The films portray a very different aspect of life in Ukraine which we have not yet seen on our screens amidst an onslaught of visuals of destruction in the ongoing Russian invasion attempt. 

IAWRT India chapter expresses its gratitude to Ukrainian Female Film Industry (UFFI) for sharing the films and to IIC for collaborating on this, especially the programme division. 

The UFFI is a collective of women film makers and they have graciously shared these films even as they face untold hardships on a daily basis. Visit Ukrainian Female Film Industry (UFFI) website to know more about them http://www.door.org.ua/. Donations can also be made at the same link to support women filmmakers from Ukraine.

The poster and schedule was designed by IAWRT India member Anitha Balachandran.
