About Veils and Walls

Poverty, Illiteracy, lack of awareness of processes, lack of support (financial and mentors), absence of community, isolation and remoteness, transport, safety, misperceptions and challenge to status quo.
The film raises questions and highlights opportunities that present themselves during political events to create change. Both women and men need to be empowered to use these moments to gain ground and change one step at a time if needed. We see how ‘institutions and organizations’ whose business it is to support these women are invisible and missing from the action leaving these characters to fight alone.
