"India is at the cross roads in its LGBT movement and some of these films here reflect the struggle of coming to terms with one's sexuality and gender role in the context of an Indian identity. We hope that this improves participation and involvement of world cinema in India as well," says Pallav Patankar, co-festival director of Kashish.
Rangayan's other stopovers in UK are a screening of clips from his own films and discussion with students at University of Sussex and then at the University of West London. "I want to talk about the new 'queer India', which I think is moving from grappling with identities to expressing it through cultural outputs," says Rangayan.
The films will be screened till November 30 in London, and then will be taken to Ireland, Poland and Sweden as a part of other initiatives.
