Description

The World View Film series, hosted by Global & Cultural Affairs in ARTS Missoula, is back at the Roxy Theater, featuring four movies about "Cultures in Words": films which reveal the power of the written world to change the world. Following each free screening, Humanities MT speaker Marisa Diaz-Waian will facilitate a community conversation, inspired by questions raised in the movie. The conversations aim to create a space for thoughtful dialogue, reflection, and sharing.  

In a male-dominated media landscape, the women journalists of India’s all-female Khabar Lahariya (“News Wave”) newspaper risk it all, including their own safety, to cover the country’s political, social, and local news from a women-powered perspective. From underground network to independent media empire—now with 10 million views on their YouTube site—they defy the odds to redefine power.
