NETFLIX SHARES STOP MOTION POEM FROM "DAUGHTERS OF DESTINY"

Directed by Oscar(R) winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth, the documentary series launches globally July 28, 2017

Los Angeles, CA - July 28, 2017 - "I am that girl who shoots bullets into the sky and makes doorways of freedom, hope and relief." "Preetha's Poem," a stop motion video illustrating a young girl's desire to escape the Indian caste system, was released today by Netflix for its original documentary series Daughters of Destiny. Brought to vivid life by female-run NYC animation studio Mighty Oak (who specialize in hand-made animation techniques), the visual poem takes shape with silhouettes that visualize the pain of a mother and her young daughter's wish to pull her out of despair. Daughters of Destiny launches today on Netflix.

ABOUT DAUGHTERS OF DESTINY

Daughters of Destiny is a 4-part Netflix original documentary series that chronicles the lives of five girls from Indian families who are among the so-called "Dalit" caste and most impoverished communities in the world. The series witnesses the girls grow up (ranging in age from 7 to 23 over the course of the 4 episodes) while they are raised at Shanti Bhavan, a unique co-ed residential school in Tamil Nadu. The expectation for these girls and all the children who attend Shanti Bhavan is that they must grow up to support themselves, lift their families and communities out of poverty and contribute to the larger world.

Directed by Academy Award(R) winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth (Freeheld, Best Documentary Short, 2007), the series highlights the struggle of students as they strive to define themselves, re-define gender and class and create a new future for the generations that will come after them. The strength and power of the girls' own storytelling and dramatic experiences over the 7 years of filming from the gates of Shanti Bhav, into their homes brings viewers through their stories of family, love, loss, hard work and courage. An original music score by Academy Award(R) winning composer A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 2008), punctuates this emotional journey.
