25th Aug, 2019: GB’s Film Screening at G5A Foundation

GB’s Film Club Screening Sunday, August 25th, 2019

@ G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture, Laxmi Mills Estate, Shakti Mills Lane, near Mahalakshmi Station.

Directions:

Films:
1.30 – Mario – moving Swiss film about two young professional footballers trying to balance growing success and their attraction to each other

4.30 – You Should Meet My Son 2 – We showed YSMMS 1 sometime back and it was a big hit! YSSMS 2 is not a sequel but repeats the formula of a mother trying to marry off her gay son with the help of her sister, drag queens and strippers! Its crazy and over the top, but also makes good points about gay relationships, and is even better than YSMMS 1)

6.30 – Two Indian Short Films

  • Silent Ties – moving film on how an old Indian tradition helps overcome new prejudices
  • U Ushacha – pathbreaking film that shows how literacy and subtle same-sex attraction can transform a single mother’s bleak life in rural India

Entry FREE but rights of admission reserved to those who respect the space.
