Movie Night: Lipstick Under My Burkha @ Yoko Cafe

From the organizer: Do women dream too much? Too many dreams lead to too many desires, uncontrolled desires, dangerous desires.

That’s what patriarchy wants us to believe. But in the small city of Bophal, four women have decided to try to set their desires free. Auntie, Rehana, Leela and Shereen, in their individual lives, challenge the borders imposed by social fetters… Getting a few inches of freedom is not easy, as no women is wonder-woman, but it’s a collective effort that starts from our very own dreams and desires…

In India, Alankrita Shrivastava’s film was first censored by the Central Board for Film Certification because it was “too lady-oriented”. However, the controversy that followed brought an overturn of the decision and actually forced dialogue on questions that are never debated publicly.
