In the days leading up to the tryouts, Kaikasha's parents give her the ultimatum that she will have two years to become a professional cricketer or they will arrange her marriage. Once married, her husband would likely not allow her to play, thus pinning all of Kaikash's hopes on the upcoming tryouts for the Mumbai team. Kaikasha's eldest sister, Saba, also has her own dreams of her career and yearns to become a model, but she endures harsh criticism for wearing a niqab to interviews. Heena, the youngest sister, desires to become a fashion designer or a singer, but poverty may impede her pursuits. All three girls must contend with the wishes of their father who does not believe women should work, in addition to the whispered judgment of those within their community.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e \u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"flex_column av_one_half flex_column_div av-zero-column-padding avia-builder-el-42 el_after_av_one_half avia-builder-el-last \"\u003e\n\u003csection class=\"av_textblock_section \" itemscope=\"itemscope\" itemtype=\"https:\/\/schema.org\/CreativeWork\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"avia_textblock av_inherit_color \" itemprop=\"text\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFestival Selection:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eCinequest Film Festival\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eSheffield Doc\/Fest Film Market\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eDances With Films\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eIndian Film Festival Stuttgart\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eIndian Film Festival of Melbourne\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eFive Lakes Film Festival (Germany)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eChicago South Asian Film Festival\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eIndian Film Festival of Houston\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003eSouth Asian Film Festival of Montreal\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"textbox\" dir=\"ltr\"\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eIn The Press\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\"An insightful story of female empowerment through sport\"\u003cem\u003e - KSCO Radio\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\"It's like a real-life Bend It Like Beckham\" \u003cem\u003e- NPR (KQED)\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\"Uplifting and Empowering\" \u003cem\u003e- Film Threat\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cem\u003e \u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\"Purdah is a beautiful narration of women's fight for identity and ambition in modern India.\"\u003cem\u003e - Media Entertainment Arts Worldwide\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\"This inspirational film about the sisters' candid journey of self-discovery is a must see with family and friends.\" \u003cem\u003e- Modern Latina\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cem\u003e \u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e“Purdah is a film that shows well how a belief system and the guidance of \u003cbr\u003eone’s religion can impact children’s dreams and adults’ lives.”\u003cem\u003e - Cinema Crazed\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eAbout the Director\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003eJeremy Guy is an award winning director and cinematographer based in Los Angeles.

Synopsis

Kaikasha Mirza, a young Indian woman, is allowed to remove her burka for the first time in order to pursue her dreams of playing on the Mumbai Senior Women's Cricket Team. In the days leading up to the tryouts, Kaikasha's parents give her the ultimatum that she will have two years to become a professional cricketer or they will arrange her marriage. Once married, her husband would likely not allow her to play, thus pinning all of Kaikash's hopes on the upcoming tryouts for the Mumbai team. Kaikasha's eldest sister, Saba, also has her own dreams of her career and yearns to become a model, but she endures harsh criticism for wearing a niqab to interviews. Heena, the youngest sister, desires to become a fashion designer or a singer, but poverty may impede her pursuits. All three girls must contend with the wishes of their father who does not believe women should work, in addition to the whispered judgment of those within their community.
