Art Womanhood Festival and Cinematic Heritage Exhibition at Liberty

Friday, February 19, 2016

The Osianama Group has introduced a unique concept, a film festival, which lasts 365 days a year at the art-deco Liberty cinema. Their calendar starts with Womanhood – The battle for thyself, which is a film and arts festival that will showcase work of Mira Nair, Deepa Mehta and Lynn Ramsay, along with many other well-known film makers. The theme of the festival has been curated based on the eight stages of a woman’s life and focuses on issues that women face such as female infanticide, child genital mutilation, child marriage, dowry demands, stoning, rape, prostitution, domestic violence and injustice. “Sharing ideas about womanhood is complex. It’s just a step short of holding a festival on humanity. The threads that bind the life of a woman are delicate and deep, especially in developing regions such as India, Asia, the Arab world and Africa, where injustice is omnipresent in several ways. We hope that after sharing and participating with us over the next two months there will be a transformation in our understanding and empathy with the subject,” says Neville Tuli, chairman of Osian’s Group.
