The Melbourne audience gets another chance to view ‘Geeta’, the raw and vibrant documentary made by Melbourne’s award-winning film director Emma Macey-Storch and co-produced by Australian-Indians Nayana Bhandari and Deepanjali Rao, that has won a number of international awards.
The film will be screened at the Palace Cinema Como at 1 PM on Sunday 10 July 2022.
‘GEETA’ is a vibrant, raw film about a mother’s heartfelt attempt to change her daughter’s destiny after a brutal acid attack.
Geeta Mahor was asleep with her three young daughters when her husband, Inderjeet, crept into their room and maliciously threw acid on them. Geeta was badly injured, three-year-old NEETU ended up severely scarred and almost completely blind, and baby Krishna tragically passed away. And the reason Inderjeet gave for the attack was because Geeta was only giving birth to girls.
Fast-forward 28 years and Geeta and her daughter NEETU live their lives in the urban slums of Agra with gusto, hope and an uncompromising determination to create lasting societal change.
Geeta is about overcoming violence, the power of love, building dreams and the everyday heroism that creates grassroots change.
