Purdah (Veil) | Jeremy Guy

Filmmaker’s statement

Synopsis: The inspiring story of a young Indian woman who trades her burka for dreams of playing on the Mumbai Senior Women’s Cricket Team and how the harsh realities for women in her country creates an unexpected outcome for her own family, ultimately shattering and fueling aspirations.

Objective: We made this film to allow remarkable women like Kaikasha Mirza and her sisters to share their stories. As filmmakers, we found their perseverance despite a mountain of obstacles to be incredibly inspiring and we hope that audiences feel the same.


We are ever so very grateful to our Patrons and Friends for supporting the festival.
