About “Hearts Suspended”
“Hearts Suspended,” is a short autobiographical documentary that brings to light the troubled world of thousands of immigrant women in the United States on dependent spouse (H4) visas. Educated and once financially independent, these women, are in the country legally but are denied the ability to work, resulting in loneliness, depression, identity crisis, strained marital relations and, in extreme cases, exploitation and abuse.
“Hearts Suspended” has traveled festivals and universities around the world, aired on National Television in India, featured on NPR’s “Here and Now” show, POV’s “To The Contrary,” CUNY Television, and the Washington Post. This exposure, combined with social media outreach, has given an impetus to this once unspoken issue and more affected women are speaking up in the South Asian community. The issue also affects a large number of women from China, Southeast Asia and some parts of Europe.
