Review of Film: http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/pride-of-place/532790/
Production: Ramon Productions in association with Global Health Advocates
Duration 5.30 minutes
The film is based on interviews conducted during the LGBT Pride March held in New Delhi this year. The pride march, organized only for the second time in Delhi, has turned out to be historic and just four days later the Delhi High Court read down section 377, the law pertaining to same sex sexual relations.
The film is an effort to showcase the perceptions of ordinary people (LGBT) on their queerness and the Pride march, which has become a regular feature now on the Delhi landscape. It will contain their views on their lives, what is important to them personally and what they perceive is the way forward. The film, though simple in concept, is an important effort to showcase the Delhi Queer community and to bring them in touch with each other on a more personal basis while also showcasing the Indian context.
The film has some beautiful verses of a song, titled ‘Jeeney do’ sung, written and composed by Nippun Bhatia of the band ‘Devotion’.
