Pedaling to Freedom by Vijay S. Jodha
The Film revisits a unique initiative in Pudukkottai, one of India’s poorest districts, where mobility of women was seen as an important tool for empowerment and promoting literacy. An unusual story which shows how a humble object like the bicycle can change lives dramatically.
