ah, i'm british manager, welcome to dw news asia. glad you could join us. it's a historic nomination, an indian documentary field nominated for the oscars for the very 1st time. it's significant, but what's even more is the story it tells writing with fire profile, the group of rural indian women running a local newspaper. it sounds mundane, only it is not. these women are mainly from the dallas community which falls at the bottom of india as discriminatory cost system. these women faced verbal abuse, threats, and intimidation just for being born, which is why working as journalists, these women aren't just writing with fire. they are playing with it. this is a film about courage and survival. about women from the lowest cost,
not only working as journalists, but also exposing, often hidden stories such as illegal mining rape cases and religious polarization. i got a good though. oh, these journalists have to fight for the truth. and for that right to report every day. but i don't know they're gonna go with who am. oh, way math again. i'm getting, i'm going to come now. it will never that i it's where these women get the courage from that the films created. wanted to reveal with navy federal point july via and alumni. how is it that the big this newspaper, when digital for school are these women are where did they get this? did it, where are they coming from and where do they want to go? what are the kind of conversations that they're having all the negotiations in
a professional field where women, especially ballot, women are not considered as, as journalists, but it's not only the prejudices of others that stand in their way. the journalists also have to conquer that own fears. shy m cali is one of the members of the newsroom who struggles most with her work and with a new technology that by the end of the film, her impactful reporting on a rape case leads to the rest of the alleged perpetrator. up some of the film unpack serious issues that many of the reporters have experienced themselves. but this isn't a one dimensional story of female suffering, and it's creative hope it will allow people to get to know india, the better. the celebration of india has been through a certain kind of lens and as indians, many times you look at be and you creams, that's not my country because there is much more grace and dignity radio than what
you are spotlighting, you know, now having a phone from india dog feature nominated. there you open those 4 more filmmakers now in the future to be able to imagine what their stories cannula. the female run newsroom had been operating for more than a decade. when the filmmakers came to document their work. now the youtube channel has more than half a 1000000 subscribers and their team and the stories they cover a growing and the report to a conscious extent spoke to those for maker then joins been now in the studio. contra, welcome. i'd like to talk to you a bit about the subject of the documentary that those would make us made at these women working in a paper called a cover letter. yeah. which literally means news waves. yeah. they are literally making wave on they because they are the, let's, they are from the lowest of the costs in the cost hierarchy of india. so it's
really pretty unimaginable for them to go out with their smartphones report on their local communities, their local stories. it really is a thing to, you know, lo and behold and see. and it's also bringing the stories of rural hinterlands to the for, which is something which is really under reported. you see stories of india from the cities mostly. but what's really missing, are these reporters bringing those stories off? you know, the local corruption, the local social injustice is the local cost. injustice is violence or crimes and be bring it on their smartphones and they have subscribers now. so they are really, truly telling their own stories, and these women were telling the their own stories that let's just break it down for us. try and paint a picture for us as to what it means to be a valid in rural india. yeah,
b t a so i have reported as well from the sparts and when i went to the rural areas, they are religious that are divided based on ca, systems. so they had a religious thought, see people from the higher cost and then dial it religious. and there is segregation between these 2, like the children from one really triumph like you know, rape and these things are also, they average perpetrated against the, against low cost. you also see the village is divided based on a water source or, you know, whether or not people from the lower cost can fetch water from, from these places. so it literally is, you know, a different india within these more micro, you know, places. and these stories are very, very relevant because their stories of equity of injustice is that happening on an everyday basis towards the lit people and ballot women doing this story is actually because they are actually the largest in the line. so, you know,
then they are talking about what's happening with them to seek accountability from people from higher cost. it is a challenge and they do it beautifully and their efforts happy it off having their absolutely, i mean, now they're going digital cover. lydia, the story is going digital, they are having smartphones. they're trying to maneuver with this uniform in hand and then navigating their lives. there people who, you know, see in the documentary it says that they are the last hope because they taught it is don't listen to them. the police don't listen to them. so they go to the reporters. so they literally are really making this change from the ground up the control center. thanks so much for coming into the studio and written that down for and give me this thanks for little over a year. i mean, most people have been fighting to get back. what was theirs? democracy, but the haunt out won't budge. that fight has led to deaths, arrests, and torture. and filmmakers have attempted to capture the struggle in the
documentary, me and mar, dieties. ah, an aerobics instructor on the streets of me, a mark behind her, the military forces that rule the country crack down on the civil population. the documentary mia, mar, diaries shows, light in the countries and so hunters seize power a year ago. it was shot in secret by group of anonymous filmmakers calling themselves the me a mar, collective. one of the directors with his producer came to the films world premier at the berlin film festival. the up until about like 3 weeks after the coup fears were relatively stable, people were on the street and there was no violence. we were able to from very freely, ah, all the really, really defi, safely. but by the end of february, 1st i did do tan ugly. the soldiers disrupt anti government protests.
a scene from the film captures the shooting of an unarmed girl. yeah, when i, when i got all. 6 night with one of the directors hope seems like this will remind the world how badly the people of me a mar, formerly known as burma, are suffering war for all. the burmese who are living in boma every day is dangerous. it doesn't even matter whether you are protesting or asti at home using facebook. you can basically get arrested for anything and everything anyway. combining documentary footage with dramatic stage scenes, mia mar diaries creates powerful images of a people resisting tyranny. despite the mass of violence, the directors of the film see hope for the future of their country.
