Film Screening - Velvet Revolution
#IIHSin invites you to the screening of Velvet Revolution, a collaborative film in which six women directors take their lens up-close to women making news. Nupur Basu, Executive Producer and Project Director will be present for a discussion after the screening.

In a world riven with conflict and dictatorial regimes where journalists are constantly under threat of both, state and non-state actors, what drives these women journalists to do their jobs?

I did not want to be a war correspondent... but the war came to my door-step, says award-winning Syrian journalist, Zaina Erhaim, now living in exile in southern Turkey.

The President is wrong when he says that journalists are being killed because they are corrupt - who corrupts whom... who holds the power to corrupt? asks Kimberlie Ngabit Quitasol, a young woman journalist from Philippines.

I could not leave my co-warriors in the middle of the battlefield, says Bonya Ahmed, the wife of slain Bangladesh blogger, Avijit Roy and the Editor of Muktomona, in her first ever documentary interview.

The documentary profiles women journalists who have paid a high price for speaking truth to power.
