Aaina 2010: South Asian Women’s Focus
Co-presented by Tasveer and Chaya

Aaina, which in Urdu means mirror, focuses on and celebrates the artistic work of and about South Asian women. The variety of media includes film, performances, visual art, workshops and speakers aimed at highlighting issues relevant to South Asian women. We are excited to bring you another great festival this year!
