Queer Coolie-tudes

We're delighted to present two screenings curated by our Associate Film Programmer Neha Apsara. Apsara's programme Begana: Musing on Queer South Asian Stories will present rarely-screened films exploring queer South Asian life and identity. The programme's screenings will be Rooted in Glasgow and Diasporicity.

You can read an interview with Neha Apsara in our upcoming Autumn/Winter publication.

Programme

Khush (Pratibha Parmar, 1991)

Queer Coolie-tudes (Michelle Mohabeer, 2019)

Khush

खुश | khush | meaning happy, ecstatic, merry, gay

For queer South Asians, the term encapsulates the intricacies of being queer and of colour. This uplifting documentary conveys the unremitting joys and solidarity of being khush and the exhilaration of a culturally rooted experience of sexuality.

Queer Coolie-tudes


A creative essay and documentary and queer ethnography tracing the intergenerational lives, histories, identities, familial relations and sexualities of a diverse range of subjects from the Indo-Caribbean diaspora in Canada.

This event will include an interview between Neha Apsara and artist Michelle Mohabeer with further reading from the Journal for the Study of Indentureship and its Legacies.

CCA Annex

All films will be available to watch online alongside the live events on CCA Annex and for a couple of days after.
