The Sound of Silence by Bina Paul

The Samaagathi Report on extreme gender discrimination on campuses across Kerala created a furore, as most Vice Chancellors went into denial, calling it false and prejudiced. The Film travels through campuses, speaking to women, providing glimpses of routine discrimination and the culture of silence around the injustice, while discovering that their spirit cannot be contained.
