Two affecting videos about traumatized women. Yasmine Kabir's A Certain Liberation (2003) follows a “madwoman” through streets in Bangladesh as she hits people with a stick; only later do we learn that during the 1971 war of independence her husband and children were killed, her nursing baby snatched from her breast. Shilpi Gupta's When the Storm Came (2003) lays out the facts of a 1991 gang rape of a group of Kashmiri villagers by Indian security forces. One woman calls it a “storm” and “total darkness,” and other women say that because they were raped they've been called “dirty.” A Certain Liberation is in Bengali with subtitles; When the Storm Came is in English and subtitled Kashmiri. 61 min.
