Salma ( visu )
3 editions published in 2013 in Tamil and held by 27 libraries worldwide
When Salma, a young Muslim girl in a south Indian village, was 13 years old, her family locked her up for 25 years, forbidding her to study and forcing her into marriage. During that time, words were Salma's salvation. She began covertly composing poems on scraps of paper and, through an intricate system, was able to sneak them out of the house, eventually getting them into the hands of a publisher. Against the odds, Salma became the most famous Tamil poet. Only then can she take the first step to discovering her freedom and challenge the traditions and code of conduct in her village. Master documentarian Kim Longinotto trains her camera on an iconoclastic woman. Salma's extraordinary story is one of courage and resilience. Salma has hopes for a different life for the next generation of girls, but as she witnesses upon her return to her home village, familial ties run deep, and change happens very slowly. The film shows why the goal of global education of girls is one the most critical areas of empowerment and development of women worldwide
