Queer Films from India I
Documentary Shorts
---

KASHISH SHORTS 2010 is a specially curated package of Indian queer short films that were screened at KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival in 2010.

This DVD 'Queer Films from India I' contains three docu shorts that showcase the diversity of Indian queer experience and expression in contemporary times.

1. ENGAYGING LIVES
Director: Shruti Rao | INDIA | 2010 | 26 min | English, Hindi with English subtitles

A student documentary exploring the lives of four gay men in urban Mumbai, the film follows lives of a young gay activist, an Haute Couture designer, a music composer and an NGO employee in their spaces along with their families and the loved ones. Their stories paint a textured tapestry of the contemporary urban gay landscape of Mumbai, weaving together various class, culture and social backdrops.


2. SPEAK UP! IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT
Director: Deepika Lal | INDIA | 2010 | 26 min | English with English subtitles

Speak Up! It is not your fault' is a documentary dealing with the issue of child sexual abuse with the stories of two survivors who have chosen to Speak Up! about it. It also talks about the lack of vocabulary among the society to deal with the issue. With a lacuna in the laws, NGO's and individuals are working towards creating awareness among parents and society to teach their children the right vocabulary and the inevitable need to trust the child.


3. XXWHY
Director: Dr.Bharathy Manjula | INDIA | 2008 | 48 min | Malayalam with English subtitles

The film XXWHY on Sree Nandu, an F2M transgender from Kerala, India, poses many uncomfortable issues that question the notions of social positionalities and fixed gender identities. Twenty five year old Sree Nandu is the first in Kerala to come in public with transgender identity. Suffering and redemption, destruction and self destruction, love and hatred, pain and joy all go entwined and entangled in Sree Nandu, while the under current is accumulating trauma and the determination to survive in a society where transgenders are still invisible and inaudible.


We hope that these films that explore the diverse realities, joys and sorrows of the Indian queer experience will entertain audiences across the world.

Also check out 'Indian Queer Films II' for four more films - Fiction Shorts - from the KASHISH SHORTS 2010 package.
