'Eve Teasing' & 'Lines' screening @ Guiar Screedance International Festival

  • Pernambuco Brazil (map)

LINES delves into the multi-pronged issue of drug abuse in Punjab. The border state of India, each year Punjab gets drugs worth billions of dollars from the neighbouring countries of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The land is besieged with social, political, geographical & emotional recuperation of the drug trafficking and increasing youth addiction.

EVE TEASING is a movement based film that attempts to capture an ordinary day of women on Indian streets. Her reactions ranging from caution, vigilance, state of fear to unnerving sickness. Targeted with lurid comments, cat calls, groping and flashing; Eve-Teasing is a common, well practiced and tolerated part of our living.

Both films are part of SitaaurGita, an ongoing movement based video series on sociopolitical factors of India. The series attempts to illustrate the social, political & cultural fabric and investigate how deeply they are intertwined. The issues addressed, though pan-Indian in their discourse, have been showcased in an urban middle-class perspective.

Performers - Sanchita Sharma, Sunaina Jain & Nikita Maheshwary
