Director Statement

I have moved to UK recently and have been disturbed with the everyday injustices I read of in the newspapers and I witness as I walk around the streets. The growing homelessness, women thrown out on streets, domestic abuse, racism, deportation and so on. From the time I read and heard about the undocumented women and their in accessibility to health, I was disturbed even more. At one level, the society does not function smoothly without their labour and on the other hand, they are denied to access health care. I wanted to speak about the social inequalities. I decided to turn my anger into a documentary so we collectively can listen, and understand the silenced voices around us, who have been denied justice.

As an activist filmmaker, I see my film as a collaborative project with the women, a project that attempts to give voice to silenced voices of women who have been denied an identity, have been marginalised and living a life in an hostile environment. The women here have faced hostility, abuse and denied or partially denied to live here. The film will also attempt to celebrate their resilience and dignity of their everyday lives, without romanticising them or ignoring their difficulties and problems.
