Poppin’ Bioscope Film Club and International Women’s Day Celebration

Samvedna Family

Poppin’ Bioscope Film Club is an initiative by Samvedna Connecting Souls started to create awareness, encourage dialogue, explore and inspire the community through carefully curated movies from diverse genres and languages.

Movie screening of Period. End of Sentence.

The maiden screenings were held on 8th March with the celebrations of International Women’s Day 2021 with Samvedna Connecting Souls. We started the day with an intense dance performance by young Neena Saxena setting the right energy levels for the day. It was followed by fun but transforming “Self-Empowering Workshop” conducted by our dear friend Agua.

We are grateful to her for a heartwarming workshop.

Period. End of Sentence.

Period. End of Sentence. is a 2018 documentary short film directed by Rayka Zehtabchi about Indian women leading a quiet sexual revolution. The documentary short follows a group of local women in Hapur, India, as they learn how to operate a machine that makes low-cost, biodegradable sanitary pads, which they sell to other women at affordable prices. This not only helps to improve feminine hygiene by providing access to basic products but also supports and empowers the women to shed the taboos in India surrounding menstruation – all while contributing to the economic future of their community. The film is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu, India.

Ladies First

Ladies First is a 2017 Indian documentary on the life of archer, Deepika Kumari. Directed by Uraaz Bahl and Shaana Levy Bahl, it chronicles her journey through living in poverty in Jharkhand, to later getting enrolled in the Tata Archery Academy and representing the country at several international tournaments.

It was shot before the 2016 Summer Olympics over three years. Ladies First was released on 8 March 2018 on the eve of International Women’s Day on Netflix.

We were graced by the presence of Dr. Neetu Singh, an Ayurvedic Doctor, who talked about menstruation in-depth and discussed the common misconceptions of the topic. It was an enlightening discourse.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    I think everything typed made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome title?

    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good, however what if you added a post title that grabbed people’s
    attention? I mean Poppin’ Bioscope Film Club and International Women’s Day Celebration –
    Samvedna is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo’s front page
    and note how they create article headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your
    posts a little bit more interesting.

    I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced to your post.
    They’re really convincing and can certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.
