‘Rising Silence’ wins prestigious awards at Moondance and Asian Media Awards
Leesa Gazi’s documentary film, Rising Silence, recently won two prestigious accolades, Best Feature Documentary at the Moondance International Film Festival and Best Investigation 2019 at the Asian Media Awards.
“I have tried to show the unique life experiences and the real surroundings of Birangona women in Rising Silence,” explains Leesa. “Despite their sufferings and plight, these women are brave, resilient and loving. The film explores where their strength and fighting spirit to rise above the sufferings come from.”
