‘I’m trying to understand if the disease and the doctor belong to different times.’

Mass sterilisation is common practice in poor rural areas of India. Women are often given incentives and doctors have targets to reach in unsanitary conditions. Ferocious young writer Swati Simha evokes a rich mystical world in this story of a doctor haunted by her role in India’s population control effort.

Directed by Emma Callander

Performed by Mina Anwar, Elizabeth Chan, Nadia Emam, Perveen Hussian, Katie West
