Synopsis:
''What do women have but their tears?', asks Sampat Pal, Kim Longinotto's latest heroine caught in a struggle to abolish the social ills plaguing a country caught between ancient patriarchal traditions and a hesitant modernity. Longinotto's projects tend to be about women who take matters into their own hands. Sampat Pal of the Gulbai (Pink) Gang is one such heroine fighting in support of the rights of women, the banning of arranged marriages involving underage girls, and the abolition of India's taboos regarding intercaste marriage. Having been herself married at twelve, Pal has a personal record of abuse suffered, which makes her engage ferociously in other women's causes, virtually unable to compromise. Capturing in great detail a colorful albeit flawed character - foul mouthed, belligerent, and prone to megalomaniac outbursts -, Pink Saris is allegedly Longinotto's most dramatic film since the explosive Divorce Iranian Style (1998).
Synopsis:
"Ce le ramâne femeilor în afara propriilor lacrimi?", întreaba eroina celui mai recent film semnat de Kim Longinotto, Sampat Pal, un personaj prins într-o lupta acerba cu traditiile patriarhale ce razbat de sub stratul subtire de modernitate ce descrie viata cotidiana a Indiei. Proiectele documentare ale lui Longinotto tind sa se concentreze asupra unor personaje feminine care îsi iau viata în propriile mâini. Sampat Pal este o astfel de eroina angajata în lupta pentru drepturile femeilor, pentru abolirea mariajului fortat si a tabu-urilor legate de sistemul de casta în regiunea Uttar Pradesh. Pal are experienta personala în ceea ce priveste casatoria fortata, ceea ce îi confera un plus de ferocitate în abordarea problemelor altor femei si o face incapabila sa accepte compromisuri. Construit prin juxtapunerea unor secvente adesea explozive din existenta cotidiana a unui subiect feminin 'imperfect' - violent si beligerant, chiar daca întotdeauna animat de bune intentii - Sariurile Roz ramâne cel mai dramatic film al lui Longinotto de dupa Divort în stil iranian.
