Due to unforeseen circumstances, the film's distributor has had to cancel all upcoming in-person and online screenings of the film.

The presentation will be followed by a post-film discussion highlight women in journalism featuring Amy Maestas from Solutions Journalism Network and Marcie Cancio Young from Amplify Utah.

In a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, emerges India’s only newspaper run by Dalit women. Armed with smartphones, Chief Reporter Meera and her journalists break traditions, be it on the frontlines of India’s biggest issues or within the confines of their homes, redefining what it means to be powerful.
