“From the Shadows”, in collaboration with Impact and a post-screening discussion and Interaction with the Director and producer Miriam Chandy Menacherry, Writer and impact Producer Triparna Banerjee & the Cast of the Film Leena Kejriwal. About the Film: Every 8 minutes in India, a child goes missing. Countless are victims of sex trafficking. This film follows two women working against this status quo: One, an artist, relentlessly sprays silhouettes of girls on public walls tagged #missing, calling attention to the loss. The second, an activist, accompanies rescued girls across international borders. These parallel narratives intersect, revealing glimmers of hope, as these women imaginatively challenge a powerful trafficking nexus in their country.
