Title: 3 Seconds Divorce: An Interactive Documentary
Author: Javed, Shazia
Abstract: 3 Seconds Divorce is an Interactive Documentary (I-doc) that explores the effect of the prevailing practice of Triple Talaq, or Oral Divorce, on the lives of Indian Muslim women. This I-doc also highlights the grassroots movement that has been campaigning to ban this method of divorce, while examining the opposition faced by women activists from institutionalized patriarchy within the community. In creating a digital space for the local Muslim feminists and victims of this law to share and amplify their voices, 3 Seconds Divorce seeks to construct a model of the Interactive Documentary as a tool of empowerment for those subaltern feminist voices that may otherwise go un(der)-represented in mainstream feminist discourse.
