In this exciting collaborative film – Velvet Revolution - six women directors take their lens up-close to Women Making News. In a world riven with conflict and dictatorial regimes where journalists are constantly under threat of both, state and non-state actors, what drives these women journalists to do their jobs?
The documentary profiles women journalists who have paid a high price for speaking truth to power.
