Threads is an intimate portrait of an 84-year old Muslim artist in Bangladesh who transforms a unique quiltwork tradition to create possibilities for a better life for her family and for hundreds of destitute mothers. Over three decades, as the intricate story-telling art they create quietly spreads to collections of museums and art connoisseurs throughout the world, Surayia Rahman and the women overcome their hardships with needle and thread, stitch by stitch.Threads takes us on a journey into the heart of one of Bangladesh's first women artists and illuminates an unconventional path to dignity and independence.To donate by check, please make payable to International Documentary Association and send to Threads, c/o Kantha Productions LLC, PO Box 143, Lakebay, WA 98349 USA
