We’ll be showing two short films followed by a Q&A.

Children Playing God (Dir: Ashok Vish/ India/2018/35m) follows the lives of five boys during their two-month rehearsal period for the month-long Ramlila performance based on the epic poem, Ramayana. The boys are considered living gods and goddesses during this process, celebrated with immense religious fervour and gaiety.

The second film, Dada and The Punjabi Princess (Dir: Chila Kumari Burman/UK/2017/14m) is a fusion of punk, pop art & Bollywood. Burman subverts our expectations of how Asian women look and behave through a playful engagement with a range of cultural and visual histories. The screening will be followed by a discussion between directors Ashok Vish, Chila Kumari Burman and Skinder Hundal.


All welcome
