RAINBOWS ARE REAL
Sunday @ 6
Director: Ritesh Sharma
Runtime: 51 minutes
A movie based on Transgenders, the “in-betweens” that are shunned by society, unaccepted and forced to make ends meet through sex work. It revolves around the lives of three transgenders - their work, their homes, their difficulties, their childhood, their relationships, their hobbies, and their normality. This is not only a story of the dark and difficult life of the transgenders, but also of their beautiful journeys filled with psychedelic and vibrant colors of the “vibgyor” that will engross us and captivate us.
