Be the first to see the best of the Festival from across the pond with our exclusive Sundance Film Festival: London Tour preview screening of the Award-Winning documentary, Writing With Fire.
A captivating documentary study of courage in complicated circumstances, Writing With Fire tells the story of Khabar Lahariya: India's only newspaper run by Dalit women. Adrift in a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, Chief Reporter Meera and her tight-knit team of journalists – armed with just their smartphones - break traditions both on the frontlines and within the confines of their own homes, redefining what it means to be powerful and challenging the gender roles they find themselves tethered to.
