Orlando von Einsiedel's documentary Virunga mesmerized audiences at Mountainfilm 2014 and was later nominated for an Oscar. His new short features an impressive collection of Indian women, called the Gulabi Gang, who live in Uttar Pradesh in northern India, one of the poorest districts in the country and a place where domestic and sexual violence is common. The Gulabi Gang's goal is to help victimized women gain economic security, emotional confidence and physical safety. With their bright pink saris and fierce-looking bamboo sticks, members of the Gulabi Gang are emblematic of courage, resilience and the power of women united by a cause.
