A screening of "Chuskit," the inspiring tale of a feisty paraplegic girl in a remote Himalayan village, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.
Don’t miss this opportunity to stream the award-winning “Chuskit,” the tale of a feisty paraplegic girl in a remote Himalayan village who dreams of going to school, and hear from the filmmaker, Priya Ramasubban. Inspired by the real-life story of a girl in India with cerebral palsy, the film follows the struggle between Chuskit and her strict grandfather. Will Chuskit persuade her grandfather to allow her to go to school or she will have to accept the reality he has chosen for her?
“Chuskit” premiered at Giffoni Film Festival in Italy in 2018, where it won a special Amnesty International Award, and won the Global Zoom Prize at the 2019 Children’s Film Festival Seattle.
