A message from  Hossein Martin Fazeli, Director of Phoolan:

“Sexual harassment and assault, from Hollywood to state legislatures, is a focus of national discussion – now is the perfect time to learn about Phoolan Devi.

“Phoolan Devi was a warrior and her story is epic. She was a gang-rape survivor, turned bandit leader, turned parliamentarian – Our film tells the true story about this powerful woman. 

“She was a champion of women’s rights and her story, virtually unknown in the West, has inspired tens of millions of her country men and women.

“We’re running a crowdfunding campaign on KICKSTARTER to help raise enough funds to complete the film.

“We have 20 KICKSTARTER days to go. If you find Phoolan’s story important, please help us! One DONATION, TWEET OR FACEBOOK POST by you would be phenomenal and will get us to our crowdfunding goal!
