A visionary leader in Bangladesh frees herself and hundreds of other women and families from poverty and social hardships by creating timeless works of art.
REVIEW IN LIBRARY JOURNAL: "Winner of the Best Short Documentary at the 2016 Female Eye Film Festival in Toronto, THREADS relates the story of self-trained artist Surayia Rahman; her storytelling designs in kantha, a traditional craft of embroidery; and how she taught poverty-stricken women in Bangladesh to embroider her designs into works of art for profit. An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive. Will appeal to those interested in art, design, and culture." – Library Journal, Denise A. Garofalo Mount Saint Mary Coll. Lib., Newburgh, NY
