Village Tales: screening of this award-winning film made by Sue Sudbury, a BU academic and documentary filmmaker

7 March , 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Speaker: Dr Sue Sudbury, Global Engagement Lead and Athena Swan Champion Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Media and Communication and Fiona Cosson, Lecturer, Faculty of Media and Communication

Village Tales (India/UK: 23 mins) is a participatory film made by Sue together with four young women in rural India, offering a powerful insight into the raw experience of women who have each endured child marriage and who are determined to change the archaic tradition for their daughters’ generation and beyond.

“No emotive soundtrack or slow motion, simply the dust, sunlight and birdsong with a palpable evocation of traditions shifting. This project is a brilliant example of the edifying power of research through film”, AHRC jury, Research in Film Award winner in the Innovation Category 2016.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A chaired by Fiona Cosson
