Nominated as Best Documentary Feature at this year’s Oscars, Writing with Fire follows the reporters of India’s only newspaper run by Dalit women as they go digital. As the lowest caste, and as women, Chief Reporter Meera and her colleagues are fighting tradition and corporate power. 

Inspiring and uplifting, Meera tracks down the stories, and through journalism, changes the conditions of life and work for those around her. Meanwhile, the general election of 2019 brings them face-to-face with the politicians.
