Nirmal Thomas’s impressive short film on the theme of “Women and Community” is about an organisation in India that helped to train three groups of remote rural women to make hand crafted items prepared with recycled materials; by doing so it helped the women involved to recognise their own abilities and to gain financial independence.
Nirmal Thomas’s award winning entry to the Articulating Women Mini-Documentary Competition is to be screened at the Earl’s Court Film Festival in London in November 2018. The Earls Court Film Festival celebrates the short film genre, launching outstanding work by emerging film makers, and giving their films exposure before large audiences.
