Petals in the Dust: India’s Missing Girls is aimed at creating awareness and spurring action in the Indian and the International communities by telling the story of the ongoing bias and violence against women through female foeticide and infanticide.
The film will explore the reasons behind the origins of this gender bias, why it is still so prevelant and its consequences. The film will also document the experiences of women up and down the economic scale who have been direct and indirect victims of this bias. Finally, Petals In The Dust will profile some of the activists and non-profit organizations that are working to create awareness, end this cycle of gender-based violence, and empower women.
With cinematography capturing both the turmoil and beauty of India with regards to its women, coupled with personal and heart-wrenching interviews, Petals In the Dust will engage the audience while emphasizing the message that this unsettling issue cannot be ignored.
10 MILLION GIRLS have been eliminated from India’s population in the last 20 years and over 7,000 continue to be killed daily!!
