Department of Sociology of St. Mira’s College for Girls, Pune, will hold a special screening of the movie ‘Evening Shadows’ at the college auditorium on September 21 from 10 am-1pm.
The screening has been chosen as the theme of the film, homosexuality, is a very relevant for today’s time and age. The film portrays life of a gay son revealing his identity to his mother and the impact it has on the family on hearing about this.
It is a film that many families will be able to relate to. Homosexuality is a concept which is still considered a taboo within conventional Indian society. A homosexual person coming out of the closet and opening up to parents and family members is not the easiest task.
Directed by Sridhar Rangayan, the movie sends an message out there for students and their families to realise that India has come of age and its beneficial for society at large to recognise homosexuality as something that is normal and not as a taboo. If families embrace their children unconditionally regardless of their personal preferences then there is room for the entire society at large to adapt and change.
- The screening of the movie will be held on – 21st of September 2019
- Time – 10.00 am to 1.00 pm
- Venue – Auditorium, St. Mira’s College for Girls, Pune
