About the Film:
In 2005, children of sex workers in Kolkata's Sonagachi red light district came together to form their own collective, Amra Padatik (“We Are Foot Soldiers”), drawing inspiration from the work that their mothers have been doing to demand their right to sex work as work. The film journeys through the lives of five Amra Padatik members whose entangled realities do not paint a picture of helplessness but of political assertiveness and social consciousness.
