Mothers of Malappuram
Producer: Bullfrog Films
From Bullfrog Films' 'Not the Numbers Game' series. The Cairo Conference on Population and Development marked a watershed in international debate about global population. Instead of the familiar, stale old arguments about 'numbers' and 'targets,' the conference participants focused on the needs and aspirations of women and men everywhere and how--by working together to meet them--the nations of the world can help stabilize world population. This film examines change in the attitudes of both women's groups and the Indian Government towards population issues. Shot in Kerala and Karnataka by Indian television journalist Nupar Basu.
