Set in South India, Kim Longinotto’s Salma is the story of a courageous woman whose journey proves that education can create change. Forbidden to study and locked away until marriage, Salma’s need to read and express herself led her to become South India’s most famous poet. Returning to her village, she faces the same traditions and codes of conduct which she broke free from, revealing the work still needing to be done.

Followed by a discussion with director Kim Longinotto (Filmmaker) and Pragna Patel (Director, Southall Black Sisters). Chaired by Jackie Ballard (Chief Executive of Womankind Worldwide).
