Cinderellas of India

Vimeo Password: newyorktristatescreening

Synopsis

A rare underdog story in sport. We all love fairytales, and we love real-life fairytales even more. What do you get when you mix 20 hard-working Indian women, crowdfunding, public generosity, and ice hockey? A fairytale unlike any other. This is the story of the Indian Ice Hockey team. From self-funded beginnings and practicing on a natural frozen pond to scripting their first international win, these girls have made each and every Indian proud with their hard work, dedication, and successes. Film offers a compelling look at how women fit into national sports culture, particularly where athletes are pressured to model ideological and political beliefs through their bodies. How are men and women differently socialized, from very early ages, in terms of healthful exercise and competitive games? How do media in society construct images of untold meaningful stories and femininity.
