Poster for a Indian documentary about queer love.
About the movie:
In the whole discussion around Section 377 and homosexuality in India, the emphasis on affective relationships and the roles they play in peoples’ life is missing. The film seeks to uncover different ideas around love, and what it means to people in their lives. At the same time the film attempts to have the subjects also reflect on the LGBTQ movement in India and the cleavages within the movement, some exclusionary practices which alienate people, and what perhaps could be some of the ways in which the movement can become more inclusive.
The film is a story of people who have lived and loved, and explores queer love and relationships, togetherness, love, sexuality and illegality in India. It documents stories of individuals who turn an inward gaze and reflect on themselves, the community and the movement. Foregrounding their lives and work, the film explores their negotiations with everyday realities.
