My Mother's Girlfriend

Begana is bringing you more films from the South Asian queer diaspora! Combining hidden stories, politics with joy and queer loving, come watch films from Rohan Kanawade's drama U for Usha, in which a single mother and a farm labourer in rural India who feels drawn to a female teacher of a local primary school, to Rohin Raveendran's romance The Booth, where a female frisking booth inside a crowded shopping mall stands as a silent ally to a forbidden romance. We hope you're ready for a fresh view through these Sapphic love stories.

Curated by Neha Apsara.
