Director's statement

Director's statement

Devi portrays a family that exists outside the traditional definitions of families in urban India. This film is my attempt to better understand this familial relationship I have witnessed with our domestic help in India. It confused me as a child, and it still does so now. As a filmmaker, I am interested in narratives that stem from a rapidly evolving culture. Homosexuality, remains criminalized, is still vehemently opposed in my country. The film intends to examine the issues of class and sexuality within a contemporary Indian family setting - where tradition and social standing mean everything, and individuality and western influence are shunned and revered in the same breath. When Devi and Tara are discovered together, the three women must suddenly redefine who they are to each other according societal norms, revealing the relationship for what it really is.
