About the Film:

Victory to Change tells the story of two remarkable activists, Varsha Jawalkgekar and Mukesh Rajak, as they fight for the most marginalized members of Indian society. Varsha and Mukesh are community organizers and citizen journalists, educating and motivating the people in the communities they serve while simultaneously working to expose corruption and injustice. Varsha and Mukesh routinely face harassment, potential imprisonment and even death threats from an opposition that will fight to maintain the power dynamics that have been in place for centuries.

Through the leadership of Varsha and Mukesh, communities that have historically acquiesced to discrimination and violence are learning to affirm their dignity and fight for their rights. This revolution is embodied in the slogan Varsha uses to greet the members of her community: "Jai Parivartan!" - Victory to Change.

    Hello all, I'm the co-producer of "Victory to Change" and I'm organizing tomorrow night's screening. The Letelier Theater is located on the Upper Courtyard of 3251 Prospect St. and can be hard to find. Just look for the staircase next to Cafe Milano.

    If you have any trouble finding the venue, feel free to give me a call at[masked] 0366. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing you all there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
