The Last Good Sari
Produced by: T. Jayashree
A woman's life in modern India-- bound as it is by traditional cultural and religious strictures-is prescribed by her caste and her sex in ways most Westerners might findhard to understand. From girlhood through adolescence, marriage to widowhood, an Indian woman is not supposed to ask questions about her body, about her husband, or about society s expectations of her. But this is slowly changing. In this documentary, filmmaker T. Jayashree weaves her own story of growing up in India while introducing us to women in Southern India. These stories reveal the power and strength of women helping each other break ancient molds and celebrate their own identity.
