The proceeds of the auction will be used for the production of a documentary film about one of the most remarkable women of our time, Phoolan Devi. Phoolan Devi was a poor village girl, a gang rape survivor, a famous bandit leader, and a parliamentarian. Her life is truly the stuff of legend.

Anyone who cares about women’s rights should attend.

With this film our aim is to inform and inspire. Phoolan Devi is almost unknown outside of India. Her story of resistance and transformation, however, is more relevant and urgent than ever. That is why the director, Hossein Fazeli, and producer, Jack Silberman, have teamed up to finally bring Phoolan’s true life story to international audiences.
