Set in the crowded back alleys of Dhaka, Bangladesh, this documentary film follows Salma a 15-year-old Hijra, who left her village and family to enter the effervescent city life in a search of a clear identity, love and above all, a sense of acceptance.

Emotionally torn between her youth and her desire of being a woman, Salma will be faced with events that will force her, as well as the audience, to question any preconceived notions of gender, sexuality, family and love.

Introduction by Jennifer Ung Loh, Research Associate at SOAS South Asia Institute.

53 minutes, Directors: Sébastien Rist & Aude Leroux-Lévesque, Cert. TBC

It is essential to book a ticket for each section of the film day. Curated in collaboration with Camden LGBT Forum.
