“Eswaran balances politics with aesthetics, making Kattumaram a beautiful and genuine experience.”
Part of an emerging queer cinema from South India, the 2019 film Kattumaram (Catamaran) depicts a conservative fisherman who gradually comes to accept his Tsunami-orphaned niece’s relationship with a woman. The virtual screening will be followed by a discussion with director Swarnavel Eswaran and Professor and Chair of the Dance Department and Professor of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Hari Krishnan, moderated by Assistant Professor of Film Studies Anuja Jain.
