Madame Phumzile Mlambo-NgcukA unveilS ‘SON RISE’ 

at The Royal Opera House Mumbai


SON RISE Premiere at the India Habitat Center, New Delhi.

“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.”


Deputy Country Representative, India, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka
