The OSCAR-nominated, EMMY Award-winning production team at

CONCENTRIC MEDIA announces the Los Angeles Theatrical

Premiere of...


New Hope for the Villages of India (30 min)

PRODUCED by Dorothy Fadiman & Kristin Atwell

in collaboration with KQED-TV


A new documentary about women of vision and courage in rural

India who are "lifting their veils" and coming out of seclusion in

order to serve in their communities.

OCTOBER 19 through 25, 2001

WOMAN by WOMAN (28 min) documents the story of progressive

change for women in some of the least developed villages of India.

Vivid images portray the humanity of the people, the beauty of the

countryside, as well as the poignant toll of centuries of poverty. In

the film we meet women who are coming out of seclusion in order

to serve in their communities. We also meet individuals who

support these efforts - a woman who teaches village women to

become family planning counselors; a village husband who works

side-by-side with his wife, in a culture which is traditionally male-

dominated; a mother-in-law who encourages her daughter-in-law to

advance in the community rather than seclude herself in the house.

The film also documents the work of Janani, one of the non-profit

groups in India which works to improve the status of Indian village

women by encouraging them to make family planning resources

and information available to their female neighbors.
