Speaking truth to power makes for just another day at the office for the fearless journalists of Khabar Lahariya, India’s only all-female news network and the subject of Rintu Thomas and Sushmit Ghosh’s inspiring documentary. The wife-and-husband filmmaking team shines a light on the Dalit (meaning “untouchable”) women of the Khabar Lahariya as they employ mobile phones and streaming platforms to challenge India’s stifling patriarchy and unjust caste system, by investigating rapes, murders, systemic corruption, and the rise of India’s far-right. This rousing work documents an ongoing, real-life battle for truth and justice, and the everyday wonder women who make it happen.
