Click for Program Details: ...and the unclaimed »
In a small village in India, far from the reaches of the It Gets Better Project, two young women, Swapna and Sucheta, fall in love. When faced with the prospect of Sucheta's marriage to a man who forbids her to see Swapna, the women decide to die in each other's arms. Tragically, their story is not unique.
Director Majumber makes this heartbreaking event a starting point for her portrait of a diverse group ofqueer women in India who come from various backgrounds, define their sexuality in distinct ways and have diverse stories, but who share pressures and often rejection by their families amid the isolationof being different.
...and the Unclaimed is a documentary filled with pain and hope, where discarded women discover their voices and declare that they do, indeed, exist.
