Join us on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:00pm for a FREE screening of the Oscar nominated documentary “Writing With Fire” – includes a post-screening panel discussion with host/moderator Gitzel Puente. Brought to you from Indie Lens Pop-Up and Circle Cinema. Sign language interpreting will be provided for the intro and panel through a partnership with TSHA. The film will be played with open captions.
Post-Screening Panel Discussion with Gitzel Puente, Whitney Bryen (OK Watch), Susan Cadot (OETA), and Allison Herrera (KOSU).
About the film: In a media landscape dominated by men, the women journalists of India’s all-female Khabar Lahariya (“News Wave”) newspaper risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to independent media empire—now with 10 million views on their YouTube site—they defy the odds to redefine power.
Apart will premiere on OETA on March 28, 2022.
