WINNER · AUDIENCE AWARD, SPECIAL JURY PRIZE · SUNDANCE

In a time of seismic change for India, the courageous all-female journalists of the Khabar Lahariya news outlet defy all odds to uphold the belief that journalism, democracy, and justice are linked in this triumphant, Oscar-nominated documentary.


Tough-as-nails Chief Reporter Meera and her team of journalists are Dalit women, a caste considered “untouchable” in India. Armed with brand new smartphones and beginning their pivot to digital journalism, the tenacious women are out on the frontlines, reporting on real issues and inspiring tactile change, despite living within a modern culture rife with misogyny.

Redefining what it means to be powerful, Writing With Fire is a story of our times, proving modern Dalit women are writers of their own destiny.

“A triumphant doc. A David vs. Goliath tale…a film that’s both a meticulous act of journalism and about it, evolving into an intriguing consideration of its place in the contemporary world.” – Moveable Feast

In Hindi with English subtitles.
