Frame x Frame Presents "Menstrual Man"

Director: Amit Virmani
2013 \ Singapore \ Documentary \ 63min \ In English and Hindi with English subtitles \ Rating: PG


There are men who squirm at the mention of a woman’s period. And then there’s Muruganantham, a school dropout in India who went to great extremes to produce low-cost sanitary pads for his wife. Once mocked by his own community, he is now acknowledged as a visionary for empowering rural women with access to both feminine hygiene and a livelihood.


Making its theatrical debut in Singapore at The Arts House, Menstrual Man tells the story of the unlikeliest of heroes in a manner that’s both funny and sad. This documentary by Singapore director Amit Virmani is not to be missed.



Amit Virmani’s debut, Cowboys in Paradise, was one of the most talked-about Asian documentaries in recent years. The controversial film was featured on CNN, BBC and various international media. It has been broadcast in over 100 countries and included in women studies curricula at more than 80 universities.


Amit lives in Singapore. Menstrual Man is his second film.
