Event Description : 
DOC FILMS : Kriti Film Club presents Traversing Sexualities and Spaces - Screening of 3 short films that look at Transmen and LGBTQ persons negotiating and reclaiming public spaces and self- identities across time and geographies. 

I’m Not There (English/Hindi/2018/12mins). 
Dir. Ajita Banerjie. 
The documentary explores the relationship between migration and one’s gender and views migration as a journey that allows one to leave behind a self that they don’t identify with, and move to a new space, seeking a new identity.

Zara Nazar Utha Ke Dekho (English/Hindi/Punjabi/ Kannada/Bengali/2018/23mins) 
Dir. Anindya Shankar Das. 
The documentary juxtaposes personal narratives of cruising from the LGBTQ community, against diverse visuals of Indian public spaces, revealing different facets and complexities of urban cruising.

Please Mind the Gap (Hindi/English /2018/20mins) 
Dirs. Mitali Trivedi and Gagandeep Singh. 
Delhi meets at the metro. The snaking lines of the tube connect the whole city. Passengers’ board from different places but for a brief moment in time they are all headed in the same direction. We share one such ride with our co-traveller Anshuman, a transman. As the stations pass, we begin to look at the metro space from his perspective. His is the story of reclaiming public space and one’s own self. The doors will open on the quest. Please mind the gap.

Followed by a discussion with Ajita Banerjie, Mitali Trivedi and representatives of the producer, PSBT.
