I am Dora, in partnership with City Screen, are pleased to announce their fifth edition.

A subjective and personal study, I am Dora explores how and why women identify with one another and what this means when the identification is with a flawed or misunderstood character.

Part 5 is guest curated by British filmmaker Tinge Krishnan. Tinge is a BAFTA winning short filmmaker who made her feature debut in 2011 with Junkhearts, a London set psychological thriller.

Tinge has chosen Jonathan Kaplan’s "The Accused", starring Jodie Foster who won her first best actress Academy award for her performance as Sarah Tobias, the target of a brutal gang rape. Praised at the time of release for it’s frank depiction of rape, it’s confronting portrayal of attitudes to female victims of sexual violence is still fiercely relevant.

The film will be screened at the Hackney Picturehouse and will be followed by an onstage discussion between Tinge and I am Dora founder Jemma Desai.

The event will be accompanied with limited run film notes, written by Tinge and Jemma, and designed by Claire Huss.
