'Listen to Her' is the latest short film on Youtube that is trending viral. Nandita Das made the short film with the support of multiple NGOs and other associations. Supported by UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, UN Women, and the South Asia Foundation (Madanjeet Singh Foundation), the short film gives a voice for women.
Sharing the short film on Twitter, Nandita Das wrote, "Here is the link for Listen to Her. If you like it, pls share and shed light on the issue and spread the helpline nos. as widely as you can."
“Whisper… Speak… Shout. Your Voice Will be Heard!" reveals Nandita Das. She adds, "The film is a spontaneous response to the irony of “STAY HOME, STAY SAFE” for millions of women in India and around the world. The film is adding its voice to a conversation that is much needed in the public space. It reminds us that speaking up is only possible when women know that there is someone listening. This pandemic has taught us that our lives are deeply intertwined, and so we must respond to the realities beyond ours."
"Please spread the word. Together we can break the silence." she adds, providing the helpline numbers, "Women Helpline - 181 Distress Helpline - 112"
Producer by Nandita Das initiatives, the short film is available on Youtube. Watch the short film.
On the work front, Nandita Das is going to be seen next in the film Virata Parvam starring Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi.
