Threads

ThreadsWin­ner of the Audi­ence Choice Best Doc­u­men­tary Award at 2014 Gig Har­bor Film Festival

Threads (direct­ed by Cathy Ste­vu­lak) paints the por­trait of a woman, her com­mu­ni­ty, her coun­try. It tells the sto­ry of Surayia Rah­man, a self-trained, pas­sion­ate Bangladeshi artist who revives an ancient quilt­work tra­di­tion, trans­forms it, and cre­ates inter­na­tion­al­ly rec­og­nized art. Then, using her designs, she teach­es hun­dreds of under­priv­i­leged women to do the same, leav­ing a lega­cy of beau­ty and sus­tain­able liveli­hoods for gen­er­a­tions to come.
