Ilayum Mullum| 1hr : 26mins
Director: K.P. Sasi | Producer: ALCOM & MADHYAM
Focus Years: 1993 | Country: India
This film is a critical reflection on the widely-held belief in the power and respect enjoyed by women in Kerala, a state in south India known for its high literacy and political awareness, its matrilineal tradition, and relatively high degree of employment among women.
This myth is questioned from a women's perspective and forms the central issue of the film.
Ilayum Mullum is based on actual incidents that took place in Kerala.
