synopsis

This VR is a journey through India today, through the eyes of three women who have all experienced the vindication of gender equality in different ways. Anjali, Shabnam and Devya Arya continue their everyday battles, combining the social idealism with the spirituality they grew up with, in a harmonious synthesis of activism and tradition. The spirit of Devi, the much-celebrated Indian deity symbolising female energy symbolically weaves her way into their tales, accompanying them on their path to emancipation and self-discovery and, like an invisible thread, embracing them in a country that is of immense size.

director's statement

The personification of female energy, Shakti, and many other goddesses of the Hindu pantheon play a key role in Indian philosophy. Today, in the face of the profound social and gender changes taking place across the country, many women seem to be seeking inspiration for change in these symbols of religious faith.
