We Are Fire Synopsis

When Champa Pal's husband was murdered her life fell apart however an encounter with the vigilante Gulabi Gang changed everything.

The 'Gulabi Gang' is an extraordinary women’s movement formed in 2006 by Sampat Pal in Uttar Pradesh in Northern India to bring justice for women. This region is one of the poorest districts in the country and is marked by a deeply patriarchal culture. The group is popularly known as the Gulabi, or Pink Gang, because the members wear bright pink saris and wield bamboo sticks.

We Are Fire is a true feminist movie. It is the epitome of what we, women are fighting for. Feminism is not about men being chivalrous or gentle to us; it is about having the equal right in society in terms of work, suffrage, wage - basically RIGHTS as a human being. This short film empowers awareness about the societal role of women in this modern society.

We Are Fire delivers its message of self-women empowerment in India through an above average script and excellent cinematography. Champa is able to convey wellher story through first hand dialogue despite the need of subtitles. Numerous scenes show life in Uttar Pradesh vividly. Camera work is excellently utilized to keep viewers' attention. With these, We Are Fire becomes a satisfying reality of fiercely independent women in a very dominant male India.
