On 2, 5, 6 & 8 March, 2016, the British Council, New Delhi, will host screenings and interactive sessions with films that look at human rights cinema through the lens of gender, marginalities and contemporary culture.
Engendered is a transnational arts and human rights organisation that brings together contemporary South Asian cinema, visual arts and performance to explore the complex realities of gender and marginalities in modern South Asia, especially at the intersection of culture and religion. Engendered is designed not only to raise awareness, but also act as a fulcrum to enter public dialogue, break silences and impact perceptions around issues of gendered identities, stereotyping, bias and sexual choice.
