In October, 2007, nearly 1,000 viewers around the globe had the opportunity to watch Kavita's compelling film "Tales from the Margins" during the Imagining Ourselves Online Film Festival. The film was removed from the website upon the filmmakers request.

'Hope all of you are having a great time catching up on your movie viewing!

We just read an incredible review about one of the films shown in our festival and wanted to share it with you! It's about Maja Borg's "Look at Lucia," a film on the Swedish celebration of Santa Lucia.

Diane Saarinen writes in her blog how her Scandinavian heritage helped her identify with this particular film. She explains how the festival grew to be an integral part of Swedish culture in the dark winter months. "The image of a "Queen of Light" visiting each household -- bearing a breakfast tray of Lucy cats and glogg (a hot spiced wine beverage), dressed in white and wearing a crown of candles upon her head -- becomes a powerful beacon of hope in a country that is essentially plunged in darkness for many hours of the day."

We all have such unique customs in our different pockets of the world. It's been wonderful getting to know about some of these stories through the festival. If you haven't yet watched the film and would like to know more about it before watching it do read Diane's review at

Sasa! is a true picture of what is happening in Sub-Saharan Africa now. I had an opportunity of travelling Home last year summer, and it is the same story everywhere you go. Women and children are suffering, paying for consequences brought on them by a male dominated culture of infidelity. Chanda, it is good you are working to bring this in motion pictures, maybe now Africa can see this dilemma in black and white.

Thank you all for your comments!

Sasa! is a remarkable film, Chanda. Beyond the story of HIV/AIDS and domestic violence is one of hope. The work you all put into making it was well worth the effort! Thank you!

Caroline, your film "Paris-Dakar" is also very moving. The cinematography is beautiful, with the drastic red/green color contrasts. Your use of sound and sparse dialogue makes the words carry great impact. The way the man turns the prostitute into a lover is very well represented; the way he fixes her shoes so they don't hurt her feet and how he holds her the way he held his wife in his flash-back. Altogether is was very touching!

Hello Everyone.

Today, my film "SASA! A Film about Women, Violence and HIV/AIDS" is available for screening. This film is about the complex connections between violence against women and HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. The film was a coproduction of Raising Voices http://www.raisingvoices.org and The People's Picture Company Inc. http://www.theppcinc.com Raising Voices is a Uganda-based organization that works to prevent violence against women and children. The PPC is a Canadian documentary production company.

On the film's page, it says "By Chanda Chevannes". But I cannot take credit for this film alone. A lot of people who care deeply about preventing violence and HIV and ensuring equity worked hard on this project. The film was conceived by my co-producer, Lori Michau. She really was the driving force behind this project. My partner, Nathan Shields was also instrumental in this piece. He shot and edited it, spending countless hours on the piece. And of course, all of the amazing women and men who gave their time to participate in the film: Mama Joyce and Josephine especially, as well as all the experts who commented on the women's experiences. As a documentary filmmaker, I am extremely lucky to have met such extraordinary people who were so willing to share their lives and their stories with us.

This film is part of a larger activist kit being developed by Raising Voices. "SASA! An Activist Kit" is a tool for organizations and activists to use to address the connection between violence against women and HIV/AIDS. The kit will be full of useful information and tools, including the film. We hope that this kit will be a useful resource to all those who are interested in making change in these two crucial and intersecting issues.

I look forward to reading the comments posted about the film. Please feel free to ask any questions that come to mind, or to share your stories with us. The problems of violence against women and HIV/AIDS are not confined to sub-Saharan Africa, of course, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and to learning more from others. Thank you for the opportunity to do so.

Let the conversation begin!

Hi there yall!!
I had the opportunity to see one of the films in this online 'mostra' and I wanna say this is an amazing initiative!!
I've seen 'Black and white' by Kirsty MacDonald, the issue of trangender's surgical trauma interests me since some years from now.
I've enjoyed this documentary that also brought me the opprtunity to meet two great women: Mani Bruce Mitchell and Rebecca Swan.
@Julia: mujer qué gusto verte por acá! en la página de tu profile, al tope casi, tienes un enlace "Add image' que pinchas y abre una ventanita. Besos! cualquier cosa me escribes al MSN :)

Hey All
Kudos to Kavita Joshi for bringing to light the atrocities committed against the women in Manipur.It was a real eye-opener.This short movie literally sent shivers down my spine thanking God for not making me born there and appreciate life a lot more.but at the same time it leaves my blood boiling to see it all happen ....since 57 years now.......Is India really free? Is India all about the 4 metros and some smaller cities?Ours is a country of so many paradoxes...one hand we have some of our names in the world' richest people and on the hand ..every second of life is a blessed moment ,but full of apprehensions of the coming ones.Are we really a democracy?
I wonder if our new 'woman' president will do anything about neglected issues like these.
I am shocked to see that the awareness of states like Manipur is less then the next movie that Shahrukh Khan will act in .
I can go on and on about this.
Kavita we really appreciate your work and obviously the courage to showcase this.
I wonder if you had to face any hindrances from the Indian Govt.But I am sure you did a wonderful job of overcoming them or so I say,if I may.
Once again ......Thanks for this.
All the best

We hope all of you are enjoying our film festival. In today’s film “Resurrection” Louly Seif shows how artists in Tajikistan are trying to adapt to the changing political scenario in somewhat gender specific ways.

We’d also like to let you all know that most of these wonderful films will be available for viewing even after our month-long festival comes to an end. However, "Butterflies and Hurricanes " by Jeanine Corbet, "Borderless " by Min Sook Lee, "Black and White " by Kirsty MacDonald, "Tales from the Margins " by Kavita Joshi, "Grace Lee Project " by Grace Lee will no longer be available after this month. So in case you haven’t seen them yet hurry, don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity!

In Lucie Duchêne's film "Appel d'Air" the main character Juliete seems lost in an internal struggle and a feeling of alienation. She is lost in her own thoughts, uneasy about something. The free fall seems to awaken her, and from her shell she emerges with a smile.

While Juliete seems to have overcome a fear, is this only transient happiness from an exhilarating fall? Is fear really that easy to overcome?

Thanks for your added story winfridah! I'm glad you mention names like N'Krumah and Nyerere, they are inspirations in my work and I would hasten to add Burkina's very own Thomas Sankara who also happens to be the only feminist revolutionary African leader I know of. In his time, he established a 'day of women' and on that day it was mandatory for men to go the market and do chores for their wives! Can you imagine?

Thank you all for sharing your views with us! You have raised very thought provoking points, especially surrounding culture and identity.

Many of the films presented raise the issue of maintaining individual identity while faced with stereotypes and misconceptions, among other challenges. In today's movie "Let Them Bark: A Portrait of Artist Ragini," Emma Cott reveals the unique strength of artist Ragini Upadhyaya, who strives to improve life in Nepal through her artwork.

Ragini raises the issue of how women are often worshipped as goddesses in temples in many South Asian countries, whereas in real life they are rarely allowed the freedoms they deserve. This is true in many countries, where women are put upon a pedestal in religion as virgin figures of purity and beauty, yet given inadequate freedoms in reality.

What do you think? And what do you believe about art as a means for social change?

Herodotus was from the same land where I am from and He is considered the first historian of the world by the western civilisation. I guess his style became a doctrine and history started to mean mainly the
storytelling of the war, conflict and as you said tintin power struggle. Whoever hold the power found the right to create The Other or "Barbarians" and used history to serve their agenda.
I think this kind of propoganda history is at its deadend. We live in a different world now. At no point in time, human beings were as much connected as we're. More people are becoming aware of the fabricated agenda of those who are in power.
And as artists as story tellers it must be our continous struggle to fight against this agenda and create new histories.
