Watch This Rad Feminist Short Film of Girls Playing Soccer in Jodhpur In this short film, feminist film director and fashion photographer Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri captured a group of girls (and an elephant!) playing soccer in the streets of Jodhpur. It's a jubilant, sweet clip and and if you think there's an underlying feminist message, yup. Indrani, as she's known mononymously, worked with the girls in conjunction with the Sambhali Trust, a nonprofit foundation based in Jodhpur that focuses on empowering underprivileged women and girls, as well as Yuwa, which has the same goals but through soccer. (Indrani also has her own women-empowerment nonprofit.) The main girls in the video, Maya and Uma, were trained by a championship-winning Yuwa team, and in the process learned a new skill, which is inspiring to see in action.
