Part of the Edinburgh Asian Film Festival Season
An old woman, fondly known as Ajji (meaning "granny"), finds her 9-year granddaughter dumped in a trash heap after having been assaulted near her slum. What follows is a bloody quest for revenge and an exploration into the horrors of toxic masculinity and how the poor have no access to justice - at the mercy of the corrupt police and those in power. Ajji shows us the cold, brutal realities of the world we live in and presents us with the most unlikely of saviours to challenge the status quo and seek justice.
Followed by Q&A with Sushama Deshpande, lead actor in *Ajji**, Amrita Dash, Counselor Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre and Dr Javita Narang, International Psychological Trauma Care Consultant. Hosted by women’s rights solicitor and singer, Shazia Ibrahim Akhtar.
