“This short film portrays the lives of women and children from Rajasthan, India whom we’ve met along our journey. We found beauty in their kindness, in their perseverance for life, and most importantly in their relentless fight for equality, respect towards oneself and others.

Poem from “Cost of Living” by Arundhati Roy

“To Love. To Be Loved. To Never Forget”

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.”
