A PLACE OF OUR OWN
Winner of the 2023 Hivos FREE TO BE ME award
(ek jagah apni)
Finding a new home isn’t easy for most people. It most certainly is a challenge for Laila and Roshni, two trans women from Bhopal, India. Their identity proves to be a disqualifying barrier for many potential landlords, but they don’t give up that easily. Where mainstream Bollywood often paints a caricature of trans individuals, this movie is lovingly and carefully produced by a trans and queer collective, with trans actors who bring authenticity to the story.
* Winner of the 2023 Hivos FREE TO BE ME award. The award will be presented during the screening on Saturday April 1st at 19.00h.
