Hello all,

I Am, a film by Sonali Gulati.

Boston LGBTQ Film Festival
2PM – Sunday May 8th  – Brattle Theater (40 Brattle St. Harvard Sq.)
4PM – MASALA Reception with the filmmaker @ OM Restaurant & Lounge (92 Winthrop St Harvard Sq.) following the screening

Having lost the opportunity to tell her mother that she is a lesbian, a young Indian filmmaker in search of answers, travels across India to meet with parents of other gay and lesbian South Asians. I Am is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a landscape where being gay was until recently a criminal and punishable offense. With courage, determination, and humor, families share untold stories that have thus far remained in the realm of secrecy and silence. It is a unique and groundbreaking film that defies the very genre of documentary filmmaking.

See you then! (And check out the rest of the great films at the festival too!)
