The Forgotten Woman Trailer
Description:
SALTAF 2009 (South Asian Literary and Theater Arts Festival) in Washington, DC, features The Forgotten Woman, a documentary film by Dilip Mehta. The Forgotten Woman begins where his older sister Deepa Mehtas 2006 Academy Award® nominee for Best Foreign Language film, Water, ended. This documentary captures the heartbreaking stories of some of the 20 million Indian widows who are abandoned by their families and literally turned out into the streets after losing their husbands. No mere companion piece to Water, this resonating portrait is characterized by more than enough visual beauty, graceful compassion and understated anger to stand on its own, wrote critic Nathan Lee in The New York Times. http://www.forgottenwomanfilm.com SALTAF 2009 takes place Nov. 7, 2009 Sponsored in part by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. http://apa.si.edu
