Directed by Jeevan Gawande

Born in the shade of the largest democracy of the world, Poorna Malavath, Kalpana Chawla, Tina Dhabi, Sakshi, Saina Nehwal and Sania Mirza could realize their dreams and soar to touch not just a half, but the whole sky.

In this 40 min documentary film "Teri Zameen Tera Aasman: Bhartiya Naari! Tu Aazaad Kahaan" ("O ye Indian Women! Where art thou free" ) women of the Indian universe, ordinary, extraordinary, teachers, labourers, students, activists, lawyers, all who occupy half of the sky speak to you. Tracing the past and present with the viewer, they share what freedom means to them now and in the future, engaging not in a victim or patronized narrative but as real conscious agents of change determined to transform the world around them for good.

Production: The film was produced on a shoestring budget from donations made by individual activists in India.
