About this Event

The film is loosely based on Ismat Chughtai’s 1942 story, Lihaaf and is one of the first mainstream Bollywood films to explicitly show homosexual relations, and the first to feature a lesbian relationship. After its 1998 release in India, Hindu activists staged several protests, setting off a flurry of public dialogue around issues such as homosexuality and freedom of speech.

This film has been selected by local author, playwright and podcaster, Sangeeta Pillai. The screening will be followed by a Q&A.
