This documentary, The Hills Where Women Rule, explores the complex society of the matrilineal Khasi people in Meghalaya, North East India, which places familial power on women, and its frictions with Khasi men’s rights group, the SRT. 

Under the matrilineal system, Khasi children take the mother’s clan name and youngest daughters receive all the family inheritance. 

But the SRT sees this to be the downfall of their culture, and the cause of men in their society turning to alcohol abuse.

Producer & Director – Louis Blair
