iW NEWS | Women Takes on "Sari Soldiers"

Documentary “The Sari Soldiers” has been acquired by Women Make Movies, the group unveiled. Directed by Julie Bridgham and filmed over three years in Nepal during the country’s transition from absolute monarchy to democracy, the film is the story of six women and their conflicting efforts to shape the political future of their country. From interviews to uprisings in seemingly peaceful rural villages and rallies in bustling Kathmandu, the film captures women on multiple sides of the escalating civil war. “The Sari Soldiers” is the recipient of the 2008 Human Rights Watch Film Festival‘s Nestor Almendros Award and will make its North American debut as the fest’s centerpiece.
