Alliance Française de Trivandrum


Q1An awareness program, on the occasion of 6th Kerala Queer Pride, with screenings of a documentary and a French short film, followed by an interactive session will be held at Alliance Française de Trivandrum on 8 July at 6.00pm.. The films focus on queer lives and related issues.

The discussion panel will have a few speakers both from the LGBT community in Kerala and academicians.

The films screened are:

1) Cappucccino by Tamer Ruggli:

Despite his marginal and extrovert looks, Jeremie is a shy teenager who keeps a heavy secret: his homosexuality. While trying to find his way between his classmate and sexual fantasy Damien and his very generous but protective mother Gina, his life is about to change. A mother’s love, despite her own misfortune, is expressed in a very subtle way. The French short film depicts the dilemma followed with gender and sexuality identities

2) Walking the walk by Mosel Tulsi(A doc on Hyderabad  Queer Pride2015):

Walking the Walk follows the participants of Hyderabad’s queer pride march in February 2015. The walk draws inspiration from this most recently successful social movement which led to formation of a brand new state in India, Telangana. This film demonstrates how a collective of activists do more than talk the talk; they set into motion a political movement that celebrates small successes, demands resources for working-class transgender people, stands up to police violence, and allows the community to grieve for lost loved ones.
