Filmhuis Den Haag Presents: Writing With Fire

On Thursday 7 April, in collaboration with Filmhuis Den Haag, ProDemos – House for Democracy and the Rule of Law, Montesquieu Institute and Nieuwspoort, we will present a preview of our festival film Writing with Fire including a talk.

Independence and bravery personified in the all-female staff of Khabar Lahariya, a newspaper run entirely by Dalit women. Journalists Meera, Suneeta and Shyamkali defy resistance, suspicion and patronising as they report on India’s news from a feminist and Dalit perspective.


After the film, there will be a discussion with the Minister of Solutions, Nienke Meijer, and the directors of the film, Sushmit Ghosh and Rintu Thomas.
