Yashaswi Desai and Ellie Walton

DOC NYC 2018

Schooling offers hope for a better future for three conservative Muslim girls.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Three young Indian women in a conservative Muslim town seek to change their futures through education and self-determination. The opportunity to continue their schooling has opened up the possibility of a different future for Karishma, Apsana, and Samira, but even as they prepare for final exams, their families threaten to pull them back into the prescribed roles of wives and mothers. At once inspiring and frustrating, Yashaswi Desai and Ellie Walton’s thoughtful film neatly captures the extraordinary challenge of breaking with cultural tradition.
