For this month, a shoutout to all those who strive a little bit everyday to break through constrictive social norms, gender stereotypes, and cultural barriers, in order to live your best life.

Join us for the screening of a movie following four women who strive to do the same.

"Set in the crowded lanes of small town India, a burkha-clad college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to be a pop singer. A young, two-timing beautician, seeks to escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An oppressed housewife and mother of three, lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. And a 55-year-old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance. Trapped in their worlds, they claim their desires through secret acts of rebellion."

Alankrita Shrivastava is an award-winning feature film director and screenwriter from Mumbai, India with a penchant for telling women’s stories. She likes to explore the interior world of women through her films. Alankrita has written and directed two feature films – Turning 30 (2011) and Lipstick Under My Burkha.
