KalaKranti 2011: A festival of queer South Asian short film

Saturday June 4, 12 – 5pm
Columbia College Film Row Cinema
1104 S. Wabash, 8th fl.
Chicago IL

Free and open to public

Trikone-Chicago presents its annual arts festival: KalaKranti. This year we feature short films by and about queer South Asians. This selection of fiction, experimental, and documentary films covers issues of migration, race, online dating, Bollywood, gender identity, HIV, family, beauty pageants, sex work, rural life, and polyamory. This is a unique opportunity to witness an incredibly eclectic range of aesthetics and images from the subcontinent and diaspora.

Co-presented with Columbia College’s Center for Asian Arts and Media & Kashish – Mumbai’s Queer International Film Festival
