MADAME PHUMZILE MLAMBO-NGCUKA
United Nations Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of UN Women
“The beautiful thing about the art is that it reflects our thoughts, it changes our minds, it demonstrates our foolishness, it brings tears into our eyes but it leaves us with profound opportunity to reflect.
UN Women is very proud to be associated with Son Rise and United Nations is proud to be a part of this journey.”
“Nothing gets to the heart the way cinema does. SON RISE is ‘Magic’ since it brings out not only voices of discrimination but of courage, of sheer strength. I am so confident that Son Rise will lay the emergency exit for gender issues that our country faces. We, at UN Women are privileged and honored to partner with Vibha Bakshi on her film SON RISE.”
NISHTHA SATYAM ~Deputy Country Representative, India, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka
“Congratulations Vibha Bakshi for presenting us with such a rare and powerful film – SON RISE. The least we could do as the audience was to give a full house standing ovation to you and the brave men and women of Haryana in fighting gender inequality”.
