THE PINK MIRROR
Dir: Sridhar Rangayan
40 mins / Hindi with English subtitles
India's first film on Drag Queens, 'The Pink Mirror 'pits two Indian drag queens against a westernized gay teenager in a battle to woo a handsome hunk. It's a clash of the east and west. Using the Bollywood soap idiom of song, dance and drama and for the first time in the Indian drag queens' very own language, Hindi, the film also explores other veiled issues related to the Indian gay community: the lurking threat of HIV/AIDS.
Rangayan's debut film was a huge success in the film festival circuit having played at more than 80 international film festivals and winning multiple awards, but it remains banned in India.
