    • Synopsis
    • The Forgotten Woman is a documentary set in India which aims to understand the destitution and marginalization of many of the millions of widows in India today who are forced by age-old traditions to live out their remaining years isolated from and shunned by the society at large. The film explores how these women, once they become widows, are coerced by their families to leave their possessions and become a non-entity within and outside society.
