Essay Film Festival: Yugantar Film Collective

Venue: Online

Join us for a live talk on the work of the Yugantar Collective with Deepa Dhanraj and Nicole Wolf.

This session will take place via this link:


This is part of a larger programme on the Yugantar Collective which features three recently restored prints of films made in the 1980s by the India’s first feminist film collective, founded in Bangalore in 1980 by Deepa Dhanraj, Abha Bhaiya, Navroze Contractor and Meera Rao. Between 1980 and 1983, during a time of radical political transformation in India, Yugantar created four pioneering films together with existing or emerging women’s groups.

To view the films please visit our main festival website anytime between 25 March and 3 April available here:
