Private Project

No Woman's land (52min)

This is a 52 minute duration documentary film based on the property rights of tribal women in Himachal Pradesh in India. Today we all talk about women empowerment, women security and imbalance in child sex ratio. a large amount of money is spent on women programmes. But on the one corner in India the law applicable here is still gender biased.General law is not applicable here like the any other part of India. Customary law prevail in tribal areas of Himachal. This is the revenue law according to which a women cannot inherit the ancestral property both from paternal and maternal side. Due to this law women are suffering in tribal areas. I am the writer and director of this film. As a freelance journalist I found this subject to be raised at national and international platform. Because no political party wants to discuss this subject. this film is case study of those women who are suffering because of this law and wants to amend this law which is gender biased.
