Linda Stirling Unmasked: The Black Whip

: Dragged from her chariot by a mob of fanatical vigilante Christian monks, the revered astronomer was stripped naked, skinned to her bones with sharp oyster shells, stoned and burned alive as possibly the first executed witch in history. A kind of purge that was apparently big business back then.



The Women Film Critics Circle And WFCC Special Jury Award Winner Acceptance Speeches!

BEST KEPT SECRET - Overlooked Challenging Film Gems
Director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury for Rickshaw Girl
"When I am making films , I never think about how people will perceive it or the awards that may come. The pleasure of making films is in playing with light and shadow, and creating emotion out of it . But whenever an award comes my way, it gives me inspiration for creating more cinema . Rickshawgirl is not just a film for me, it’s my journey to understand and celebrate the multitude of courageous and resilient Bangladeshi girls who fight for a dignified survival everyday. Thank you Jury board for this appreciation. Thank you, my beautiful Naima ,Novera Rahman, my producers and team for riding with me in the Rickshawgirl journey."
