Brought to you by HAC and Harrow based organisation Tongues on Fire, who seek to provide a platform for independent film and arts with a link to South Asia, this special screening offers the chance to experience the best of independent South Asian film – right here in your local venue.

In rural India, a burkha-clad college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to become a pop singer. A young two-timing beautician seeks to escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An oppressed housewife and mother of three lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. A 55-year-old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance. Caught in a conservative society, these women set forth to break the mold, in search of a little freedom.
