A Grantee of One World Media, in January 2017, I directed, filmed and produced a short documentary, which screened at Bertha DocHouse at Curzon Bloomsbury on May 15th, 2017.
The Story: Radhyshaym, a closeted transgender from Udaipur, “longs to meet a prince”. Forced into an arranged marriage with three kids, Radhyshaym has been repressed into the role of husband and provider, yet, through dance has found a safe way to explore femininity. Male Rickshaw driver by day, female dancer by night; Radhyshaym’s life is compartmentalized. This film explores the struggles to be true to oneself within restrictive gender roles.
