Here is a link to the latest newsletter for THREADS.  You’ll find information about the national award Surayia Rahman recently received, along with details of how and where you can get your own copy of THREADS, and how you can request it for your local library or your school.

We’re so grateful to many people who have helped along this journey, and we hope to have your support as we move to the next phase of this inspiring project: continuing the outreach for the film, bringing it to women and girls around the world and using it to improve the lives of artisans everywhere.

Links to past newsletters and to other articles about Surayia Rahman and THREADS is on the film website here.

Very best wishes for 2018!

Many, many thanks to Elizabeth Hendrix of RippleFLIX for her vision, energy and skill!  We appreciate your help more than we can say.  And thanks also to the tech staff at Siteground for helping us go live today.

Threads is now available for educational institutions, libraries and for community screenings at distributor Collective Eye.

For home use (without public performance rights) you can buy a DVD on Amazon.com or stream the film on Vimeo.com.

Please help us spread the word, and ask your public library and school to get a copy!

In our most recent newsletter you can learn about the trip that we took to Bangladesh and India to bring Threads to multiple audiences including women and girls as well as artisans.   Bringing the film back to Bangladesh, where the story started, has been one of our goals for years.  We are very thankful to the many friends and sponsors who made this possible.

We are working now on making Threads available on DVD and for streaming or download.  We’ll announce here and on Facebook when you and others can buy your own copy of the film.

Thank you again to all of the loyal friends and supporters who have helped to make this film possible!

We are shocked and saddened beyond words by the news of a terrorist attack in Bangladesh, and hope that everyone affected can find peace and healing soon.

We remain committed to bringing Threads back to Bangladesh, where this inspiring story of Surayia and the women began, later this year.

The current newsletter for the film can be found at this link.  Thanks to Lynn Stevenson for adding the film’s third winning laurel (above, details in the newsletter) to the wonderful poster she did for Threads!

We wish all of our friends in Bangladesh and around the world Eid Mubarak and hope that peace prevails during the holiday season.

THREADS poster design by Lynn StevensonWe wish everyone a happy and healthy 2016!  You can read our end-of-year recap newsletter here.

2015 has been a year filled with activity for Threads, and we look forward to announcing more exciting news soon.  Please keep following the list of screenings on our home page and Facebook, and do contact us at info@kanthathreads.com if you or someone you know would like to host a screening of the film.

As we noted in the newsletter, we are fundraising to dub the English portions of Threads into Bangla, and to travel to Bangladesh to show the film to a number of audiences, including in the slum where our friends from Spreeha work.  Please consider a tax-deductible year-end contribution to these efforts via the International Documentary Association.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us so much this year, especially to Lynn Stevenson who designed beautiful posters, flyers, bookmarks and postcards.

Here is the link to the latest newsletter from Threads.  As you can see in the newsletter, and from the growing list of laurels on the website homepage, the film is reaching a wider and wider audience.  If you know of people or places that should host a screening of this film, please have them contact us or let us know how we can reach them.  info@kanthathreads.com.

One of our next goals is to dub the English portions of the film into Bangla so that we can show it widely in Bangladesh.  We hope to have exciting news soon about when Threads will screen there.

Thanks again to everyone who has supported Threads!  We could not have come this far without your help.
