Global Voices: Lakshmi and Me

Global Voices: Lakshmi and Me

Mon, 06/17/2013 - 9:00pm - 10:00pm

Set against a backdrop where servants are habitually treated as social inferiors, the film looks at what can happen when an employer shows empathy, and a silent worker finds her voice. In this intimate examination of the relationship between Indian filmmaker Nishtha Jain and her young maid, Lakshmi, Jain holds up a mirror to her own culture and the pervasive caste system that can still determine an individual's fate in life. Global Voices: Lakshmi and Me airs Monday, June 17, 2013 at 9 p.m. on WXXI World.
