Writing With Fire follows chief reporter Meera and her courageous team of journalists as they uncover stories and upend traditions at Khabar Lahariya; India's only newspaper run by Dalit women.

Working in a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, and living in Uttar Pradesh - a state known for its notorious levels of violence against women and oppression of minorities - Meera's team face down daily challenges to tackle India's biggest issues. 

Armed with their smartphones, the KL reporters break traditions on the frontlines and within the confines of their own homes.

Writing With Fire is presented in partnership with the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Fesitval
