Panihari: The Water Women Of India (2004)
Though families depend on them for their very survival, the women who walk for miles in order to transport precious water back to their homes--the Panihari--are regarded as an inferior class and frequently abused by the men of the Indian state of Rajasthan. This riveting documentary chronicles the story of Paru, a Panihari struggling with both the hardships of the scorching desert and with her society's culture of oppression. 30 min. Soundtrack: English and Hindi; audio commentary; photo gallery.
