In April 2021, India made headlines all around the world as the second wave of COVID brought the country to its knees. “Critical Juncture” starts at this dramatic time but focuses on a different point of view: through the eyes of Priyanka, a 30-year-old filmmaker, audiences see how women stepped up to the frontlines, to help their country in need. India is a complex country based on a patriarchal society. The key question of this documentary is: could COVID impact gender norms in India?
Storyteller and digital creative producer Alessia Barbiero is based in Amsterdam, with over eight years of international experience in documentary filmmaking. and fifteen years of experience in journalism experience
