A documentary film on commercial surrogacy produced by Sama and directed by Surabhi Sharma will be screened at the India Social Institute (ISI), New Delhi on 13 May 2014.
The film explores questions and concerns through the experiences of surrogate women. The narrative traces the ethical challenges, medical malpractice and potential exploitation that can occur when surrogacy is practiced in a legal vacuum, and highlights the interplay of surrogate women’s choices, contexts and compulsions.
The screening is being organised by Sama and supported by UNFPA particularly for those who are in print, visual, digital and other media, including media students. The screening and a subsequent discussion is expected to facilitate an interaction/conversation in a mix of Hindi and English, and updates on commercial surrogacy in the Indian context.
Date: 13 May 2014, 2 pm to 5 pm
Venue: Indian Social Institute, 10 Institutional Area, Lodhi Road, New Delhi 110003
