"The Sakthi Folk Cultural Centre, located in Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, India uses the Tamil folk arts to develop self-esteem and economic skills in young poor Dalit women (former outcastes or untouchables). This participatory documentary film reveals how Sakthi reclaims the degraded parai frame drum and dance to re-humanize and empower these young women through the physical embodiment of confidence in performance and reclaimed cultural identity in a complex campaign against gender, class, and caste oppression." -deadCenter Film
