An insightful and rare documentary about the views, hopes and struggles of ordinary women travelling on the rush-hour ‘Ladies Only’ carriages to and from the hyper frenetic megalopolis of Mumbai.

‘What makes you angry?’a filmmaker asks a woman traveller in the ‘Ladies Only’ compartments of Mumbai local trains running in and out of the main stations. The answers to this and many other questions are both insightful and surprising, highlighting the issues, hopes and struggles of womanhood in India today, especially in the face of the frenetic non-stop Mumbai lifestyle. The changing light, faces and languages creates a poetic rhythm flowing through this engrossing and must-see documentary.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Rebana Liz John.
