“Sari Stories” on Al-Jazeera

Al-Jazeera English recently broadcast Sari Stories, a documentary about the lives of four village women in the Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. All former child brides themselves, the women decided to focus the piece on child marriage in their community. What’s unique about this film is that the women were trained to shoot their own footage and interview their friends and family, which adds an intimacy to the piece that is rare.

Watch the whole thing. It’s worth it.

Part two can be found here.
