The short film Listen To Her by Nandita Das features a scenario of a busy working woman who is also trying her best to manage household chores, work, and family. As the film goes on featuring the main character played by Nandita Das, one gets a clear idea of what ‘Listen To Her’ is about after the lady gets a phone call. During the phone call, a domestic help expresses how she is facing domestic violence at home during the lockdown. The short film Listen To Her focuses on being the voice to a conversation that is much needed in the public space and is a response to the irony of “STAY HOME, STAY SAFE” for millions of women in India and around the world.
