Daya - Indias Daughter

A film by Leslee Udwin

Directed by award-winning British filmmaker Leslee Udwin, India’s Daughter is the story of the brutal gang rape and murder in Delhi of 23-year-old medical student Jyoti Singh, which sparked protests and serious debate about gender inequality across India.

Through interviews with Jyoti’s family and friends, victims’ rights advocates, as well as from the assailants, their lawyers, and their families, India’s Daughter paints a complicated picture of a country struggling to embrace modernity while wrestling with the rampant effects of extreme poverty and patriarchal attitudes towards women.Read more

Catastrophic Theatre - Booty Candy

By Robert O'Hara, Directed by Vance Johnson

Robert O’Hara’s semi-autobiographical and wildly subversive comedy tells the story of Sutter, a young gay black man on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and his grandmother’s nursing home.

Winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Drama and a New York Times Critic’s Pick.Read more
