OVERVIEW

Four young Hijras in Dhaka reclaim their stories by sharing firsthand their fight for acceptance in a society that has, for generations, violently discriminated against them.

This film will explore and challenge gender, sexuality, and class in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The audience will see the lives of four young Hijra who battle for acceptance as they overcome societal barriers to make friendships, find work, fall in love, and re-build familial ties. Their lived experiences are brought to light and we see the effects of physical, sexual, emotional, and mental abuse.

Feature documentary - currently in development
