    Light House Cinema
    Special Retrospective Event: Free Screening Based on Vito Russo’s groundbreaking 1981 work of? film history, this wonderful documentary, The Celluloid Closet gathers clips from dozens of mainstream Hollywood films to illustrate how North American cinema has dealt with LGBT themes over the years.

Layered between the?clips are insightful interviews?with filmmakers and prominent Hollywood stars including Susan Sarandon, Shirley MacLaine and Tom Hanks. So whether you fancy revisiting this iconic film or are seeing it for the first time, we hope ?you join us for this special retrospective event. More

    Women in India are disempowered due to a predominantly patriarchal structure and to be a lesbian, bisexual or trans man means double disempowerment.

LBT people in India face insurmountable challenges to live openly and with dignity. Finding love and a life partner are dreams that take a lot of determination to make it a reality. Purple Skies, an upbeat feature documentary by award winning filmmaker Sridhar Rangayan, weaves together personal accounts of courageous LBT youngsters with a critical? analysis of the issues faced by the community, and places it in context of the historic struggle of the LGBT community in India to find its true place in society.
