What is Feminist Research: Gargi Sen

Gargi Sen

For filmmaker Gargi Sen, feminism provides a lens through which to look at the ways power operates in the world and see how it can be transformed.  Here Sen discusses how her approach to social justice filmmaking has grown more open-ended and relational since her initial involvement in the early 1990s, and emphasizes the need for collaboration between artists and academics in times of crisis.

Gargi Sen is artistic director of Magic Lantern Movies and served as Fulbright Visiting Scholar in Global Affairs at UC Davis in 2017-2017.
