'Sivaranjani...' a tribute to 'women fighting patriarchy'
Mumbai : "Sivaranjani and Two Other Women" is a tribute to women who are fighting patriarchy, says its director Vasanth Sai.
"The home, considered the safest space for women, is where the casual sexism and entrenched misogyny plays out in the everyday routines of countless women across the world," Sai said in a statement.
"I wanted to express this from the point of view of the three women portrayed in the film 'Sivaranjani and Two Other Women', which is a tribute to women fighting patriarchy," he added.
The Tamil anthology film is one of the nine films shortlisted for the Oxfam Best Film on Gender Equality at the 20th edition of the Jio Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) Mumbai Film Festival.
The winner of the Oxfam Best Film on Gender Equality Award 2018 will be announced on November 1.
