A Home for My Heart

A Home for My Heart (Hridoy Basat) is a Bangla film with English subtitles that tracks the journeys of Sudeb Suvana, a trans feminine person. She thinks that her heart will find home in her body after gender affirmation surgery, but the process also reveals subtle shifts in her relationships with her partner, her parents and her brother. Is the quest for the perfect home for our heart ever complete? The 63 minute film is directed by Sankhajit Biswas in collaboration with Suvana. This is the film's first screening in the US.

Tuesday 3/14 at 2pm in the Pyon Su Room (Stamp 2108)

Being Queen is My Resistance

This cabaret-style, one-person show blends storytelling, drag performance, dance, and video to weave together milestones in KaMani Sutra’s story of discovering their femininity while being an adult immigrant to the United States. It contrasts the freedom to express their true self in a foreign land with aesthetics and inspirations rooted in the richness of Indian drag. Interspersed with short performances and (consensual!) audience participation, KaMani’s lecture-performance-workshop challenges the myths of the model minority, binary gender, and colonizer saviorship. It is a celebration of intergenerational queerness, LGBTQ+ community, saris, mujras, divine femininity, and self-love.
