Maid Servant

Director Yugantar Film Collective / 1981 / India

India’s first feminist film collective, Yugantar, was founded in 1980 by Abha Bhaiya, Navroze Contractor, Deepa Dhanraj and Meera Rao during a time of radical transformation. The group blazed a trail by working directly with the communities they were depicting, and their creative agitation ultimately inspired political change.

Female labour rights are a focus in Maid Servant (Molkarin, 1981), which features domestic workers in Pune.
