Feminist Film Screening: Lipstick Under My Burkha

Event organized by Vondelbunker

Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

After a very successful screening of Women Without Men, we’re back with a new Feminist Film Screening!

During Feminist Film Screenings we screen small-production films that bravely break down barriers and norms, are seen as controversial by some feminist circles and/or the general public and are often centred around a specific taboo. This time we present to you: Lipstick Under My Burkha!

This, for lack of a better description, black comedy chronicles the secret lives of four women in search of a little freedom. Set in the crowded lanes of small town India, a burkha-clad college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to be a pop singer. A young two-timing beautician, seeks to escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An housewife and mother of three, lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. And a 55 year old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance. Trapped in their worlds, they claim their desires through secret acts of rebellion.

After the movie there will be a discussion where you can openly share your thoughts and opinions.
