This screening was followed by a Q&A with director Deepti Gupta. Hosted by writer, film critic, curator and BBC Asian Network host, Ashanti Omkar.

Gloriously outspoken Indian singer Sona Mohapatra must feel like she’s battling on all fronts: fighting for space in India’s sexist music industry, courting a media circus, sparring with her internet trolls… and then a blasphemy lawsuit lands at her door. A powerful voice on stage, and in India’s #MeToo movement, Sona Mohapatra refuses to be silenced.
