THE CHILDREN OF GOD, 32min., India, Documentary
Directed by Parthajit Baruah
This documentary looks at the social taboos prevailing in the social-cultural framework of India. Sanam, a young school girl, begins to feel that she is psychologically transformed from a girl to a boy, and starts to cut her hair, wear, walk and behave like a boy. One day, when she reaches her class late, the class teacher humiliated, bullied and abused her in the classroom. Even the class teacher asked her to take off her panty to check her gender. At such a critical moment, she even thinks of committing suicide. The compassionate principal of her school shows her a way out by giving the mobile number of Kuhi, a member of LGBTQ community. Sanam discovers herself in a new world, and finds a space of her own through her encounter with Kuhi.
