The short film THE AWAKENING is a small effort we, as university students made
to open the eyes of the public towards the violence that operates in the society against women.
Violence exists everywhere, but sometimes we don't see it as violence as we look at it from different viewpoints. Many girls and women are suffering silently all over the world. We have focused our attention towards child marriage, marriage of convenience, domestic violence and the concept of saving girl child in this short film. The ending of the film shows how the violence affects indirectly on innocent lives. The mother is compelled to make a tough decision as she doesn't' want her child become a victim of violence like her. We invite the public to decide whether her decision was justified or not from her side.
This short film was created as a university assignment under the theme of gender based violence. This is our first experience in this field and thinks we have tried our best on it.
THE AWAKENING is a tribute to the all the women on the planet.
