17 : 30 | Ahmedabad
Arthshila Ahmedabad’s Film Showcase this week features ‘City Girls’ by Priya Thuvassery and ‘The Indian Woman: An Historical Assessment’ by Mani Kaul.
‘The Indian Woman: An Historical Assessment’ is the film about unpaid, overworked, a woman at home, mother; questioning how much does their labor cost? The film fathoms history – of matriarchy and patriarchy, of morality, of oppressive anti-woman modes.
‘City Girls’ is an intimate portrayal of two young girls from small towns of India now living in Delhi. The film attempts to deconstruct the image of ‘the city’ and what it means for a young woman brought up in an ‘elsewhere’ she is longed to escape from all her life.
Join us for the screening at 5.30 pm on 30 June 2023 (Friday) and at 11.30 am on 1 July 2023 (Saturday).
