Organized by DU’s Gender Studies Group, the films will be shown at the department of political science. Entry is free and open to all.
Three works by Kolkata-based filmmaker, Debalina Majumder, will also be featured in the festival. One of them is ‘Ebang Bewarish’ (and ‘The Unclaimed’). The documentary tells the story of Swapna and Sucheta, lovers who committed suicide in West Bengal’s Nandigram in February 2011.
Another film, ‘Taar Cheye Shey Anek Aaro’ (More than a friend), looks into the life of four individuals in the background of rising awareness on same-sex relationships. The film also has real-life interviews of people from various sections of society.
A student-panel discussion on lesbian representation in cinema will also be held on Saturday at 3pm.
