Plot "A Pyramid of Women" tells the story of a group of women in India who are challenging the male domination over a Hindu religious custom. During the festival of Gokulashtami, which celebrates the birth of the Hindu god Krishna, people in the city of Mumbai (Bombay) hang decorated pots several storeys high. Teams of men compete to reach and break the pots by forming human pyramids on the street below. The only protection for the climbers is their own skill and the hope that their teammates below will catch them if they fall. The women of a working class textile mill neighborhood have decided to challenge this tradition by founding the first-ever women's team to form these pyramids. The documentary follows them as they plan and practice for the big day, and attempts to understand why they risk breaking their necks to break these pots and to break a male monopoly in the sensitive area of religion. It explores the question of whether their poverty may have conversely contributed to their new confidence and to the changing gender roles in the city.... search for A Pyramid of Women on IMDb
