President Doz invites you to attend the upcoming Hidden Gems Film Festival where they are going to reintroduce the New India to you with a double-bill of films unlike anything you have seen!
The first is Daughters of Mother India
'Daughters of Mother India' is a filmmaker's journey through the aftermath of the horrific rape and murder of a 23 year old old medical intern in Delhi on 16th December 2012. For weeks mass protests filled the streets of India and the country witnessed 'gender consciousness' and extraordinary solidarity by the ordinary citizens - like never before.
The second is India In a Day
In October 10, 2015, Ridley Scott, Anurag Kashyap, Richie Mehta and Google invited the people of India to share their stories about life in an evolving India - from the ordinary to the extraordinary; personal to profound. The result is 'India In a Day', India's first fully crowdsourced feature film.
