Is This Just a Story?
Directed by Yugantar • 1983 • India
The Yugantar Film Collective’s most successful and widely seen film sheds light on the issue of domestic violence in Indian society. Created in collaboration with the feminist activist collective Stree Shakhti Sanghatana, this short, improvised narrative film focuses on feelings of isolation and depression while also developing a complex female character in the process of articulating her situation and finding support in friendship.
