Compelling Indie Documentary

Kaikasha Mirza takes on the patriarchal judgment of her Mumbai community as she hopes to be selected as a rare Muslim in a prestigious women's cricket team. Jeremy Guy's beautifully conceived and directed and evocatively shot story about family, tradition, sports and religion, Purdah is a totally compelling documentary. In a time filled with intolerance for Muslims and burka bans, Purdah offers up a powerful, life-affirming story for and about strong women. But everyone should watch this essential, moving documentary!

Breathtakingly beautiful

This film is so visually beautiful and touching I can't stop thinking about it. It has such a cinematic feel. The shots are so artistically composed and it feels like I am watching a narrative film or real life experience rather than a documentary. Perhaps that is because the interviews are so artfully done. No talking heads here, just real honesty coming from the subjects. The story is uplifting and speaks to women striving for self empowerment in patriarchal societies around the world. Purdah is filled with hope at a time when we need it most. The music is also so fitting. So well done!!!

Great Film!

Purdah is a great film. The documentary is a really inspiring and dramatic story of three sisters in India who have to take on a mountain of obstacles. The girls are really charismatic and you can't help but root for them. I found myself both laughing with them at times and then crying for them at other times. This movie has some very big surprises in it. I highly recommend seeing this film as it is a beautiful looking film that transports you to a place and people that I would never otherwise learn about. The documentary is particularly timely nowadays too, given all of the controversy over proposed Muslim bans and even burka bans in some places. Purdah is a film for anyone who likes great documentaries, stories about strong willed women, or wants to learn more about different cultures. Go watch it!
