A brilliant list of women across the world who were first in their country to make films. From Australia, through Japan and South Korea, spreading through Middle-East into Europe and Africa, a must read article for all who love films.

7 years back, Arifa Rafee did not know farming. Nothing, nada. She was a teacher and then a banker. Till the land called her and her husband. The natural way is what she zeroed in, in spite of the many chemical recommendations from scientist-consultants. The soil is poor, said a horticulture officer. Get new sar4-7oil. But she used Farm Yard Manure and rejuvenated.  Then when her baby mango trees grew up, the officers said—iron deficiency. Like a new mother, she worried and called for experts. The expert wouldn’t come to an organic farm (pointless he thought). But he did finally and declared them “obese.”
