The forgotten woman
La femme oubliée ; producers, David Hamilton and Noemi Weis ; director, Dilip MehtaDVD - 2008 | Bengali
The Forgotten Woman was made in direct response to this interest and aims to bring about an understanding of the destitution and marginalization of many of the millions of widows in India today, who are forced by age-old traditions to live out their remaining years isolated from and shunned by the society at large. The film explores how these widows, coerced by their families to give up their possessions, become non-entities in society.
