Watch Out For!

Opening Film

The Tiger Hunter

Sami Malek’s father is a tiger hunter. With the same fearless blood running through him, Sami decides to leave his small village in India to chase the American Dream. But once he arrives in the United States, he realises that this will be his grandest adventure yet. The film is directed by Lena Khan and features Danny Pudi, Rizwan Manji, Jon Heder and Karen David.

Indian Connect

Bachelor Girls

Single, independent women in the cosmopolitan city of Mumbai are given the cold shoulder when they try to find decent housing. Because of their ‘unmarried’ status, these bachelor girls are portrayed as a nuisance to their building and neighbours. This insightful documentary explores the values of Indian society and how they affect women in the modern age. The film is directed by Shikha Makan.

Escaping Agra

Nineteen-year old transgender college student, Naveen Bhat chronicles the experience of being illegally detained by his parents in Agra, India, after his true sexuality and identity is revealed. With the support of his partner Madi, Madi’s family and the Indian LGBT activist group who helped saved him, Naveen gives viewers a firsthand account of the challenges he faced in his quest to live a life he could truly call his own. The film is directed by Pallavi Somusetty.

Closing Night Film

The Chinese Exclusion Act

With The Chinese Exclusion Act, filmmakers Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu tackle a complicated yet undertold story about a significant piece of US history — the only legislation barring an entire group of immigrants based on ethnicity and race. More significant, as highlighted through first-person interviews and archival materials, is the resistance against racism and the resilience of people that shaped the fabric of the United States well into the 21st century.
