CECILIA

Dir: Pankaj Johar
India / Norway / 2015 / 83mins

When Cecilia’s 14-year-old daughter is trafficked and found dead, she decides to fight for justice. 

This is the extraordinary story of the struggle for justice of Cecilia Hasda, a tribal woman from West Bengal-India, whose daughter is trafficked and found dead in New Delhi. In a country where thousands of tribal children get trafficked every year to cities and many never found, Cecilia decides to fight back with the help of her employers Pankaj and Sunaina.

The film follows as the trio battle corruption at all levels, forcing them to navigate a complex network of cops, traffickers, judges, lawyers, villagers and family members. But when Cecilia’s husband is kidnapped and her two sons are forced to leave the village, all hope appears to be lost. 

We're delighted to announce a last minute Q&A with director Pankaj Johar, via Skype, following the screening on Friday 2nd September at 18:30.
