To celebrate International Women's Day, The United Nations, in partnership with the BOZAR and the European Commission, presents:
Winner of the Global Justice Award, at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, Light Fly, Fly High by Beathe Hofseth and Susann Østigaard is the fascinating story of a young woman who dares to challenge society's expectations.
It tells the story of Thulasi, a young Indian woman who is literally willing to fight for the right to be herself.
Not only is she a woman, but she is also a "Dalit," or "untouchable" in the Indian caste system, and therefore expected to accept her position at the very bottom of the social ladder. But Thulasi is different. She wants to be independent. She wants to be a boxer.
With special guest: Susan Østigaard, Film Director
The film will be subtitled in English and has a runtime of 80 mins
