Yes Madam, Sir

Friday, July 31 - Thursday, August 6, 2009

Screening in DocuWeeks 2009. YES MADAM, SIR tells the compelling story of one of India’s most iconic revolutionaries, Kiran Bedi. An Asia Nobel Prize winner and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Bedi is one of the world’s greatest living change agents, yet remains an intriguing paradox — deified by millions for her commitment to social justice and her public stance against corruption, and vilified by the establishment as a publicity-seeking, uncontrollable megalomaniac. YES MADAM, SIR carries the audience through Bedi’s controversial work life, from manning Asia’s largest and most notoriously corrupt and brutal prison, through her effort to weed out corruption in the Indian police force.
