‘UDITA’ (which means ‘arise’) follows 5 years in the lives of the women at the grass roots of the garment workers struggle. From 2010, when organising in the workplace would lead to beatings, sacking and arrests; through the tragedies of Tazreen and Rana Plaza, and to the present day, when the long fight begins to pay dividends. We see this vital period through the eyes of the unions’ female members, workers and leaders.
‘UDITA’ weaves together characters from acclaimed documentaries, ‘The Machinists’  and ‘Tears in the Fabric’  with new faces and scenes, filmed in 2015 with the women at the font line of the struggle
‘FRIENDS OF THE WORLD UNITE AS ONE’
‘The film provides profoundly thought-provoking insight into the exploitative world of “fast fashion” and the devastating effects of Western consumerism on the lives of abused women workers’ – Laura Nicholson | Women and Hollywood Blog Indiewire
‘An engrossing biography of resistance against repression, Udita is a mosaic of stories from an industry characterised by exploitation and industrial homicide’ – Tansy E. Hoskins is the author of Stitched Up – The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion
