Five LGBT Films to be Screened at National Law India University, Bangalore

Sridhar Rangayan's acclaimed film 'Breaking Free' - the first Indian LGBT documentary selected by the government as part of its prestigious Indian Panorama 2015 - and five other LGBT films will be screened at National Law India University, Bangalore on January 14, 2016 from 3.30pm to 7.30pm.

This 82 minute documentary film exposes the human rights violations that have been inflicted on the LGBT community due to the misuse of Sec 377 by the police and the apathy by the government and society. It also details the two decade long legal battle around Sec 377 in the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court.

"Breaking Free is a must watch for law students to know why everyone should come together to have this law repealed. So I am really happy that we are able to facilitate this screening", said Rangayan who hails from Bangalore himself, "The film is a documentation of the LGBT community's journey from invisibility to empowerment. It will serve as an inspiration to younger generations".

Breaking Free has already screened at more than 15 international film festivals.

Speaking about the importance of this event, Akshat Agarwal, who is part of the NLS Queer Alliance, said "Films due to their visual impact are a powerful way of communicating with people. Hence we look forward to hosting this screening in Bangalore, along with KASHISH Mumbai International Film Festival, as it would go a long way in creating consciousness about the need to recognize LGBTQ rights."
