Purple Skies

  • Added 6 years ago to SNEAK PREVIEWS

    Like shifting clouds and shifting colours of an evening sky, Purple Skies weaves together stories of pain, trauma, hope and happiness of lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LBT) persons to offer an evocative, endearing tapestry of contemporary Indian LBT lives - sometimes sad, sometimes anguished, sometimes dreamy and often humorous.

    It features stories of LBT persons victimized and subjugated by law, family and society; and hopeful stories of younger LBT persons who have overcome barriers to live openly with dignity. The film assumes special significance in the context of recent recriminalization of homosexuality in India.
