Gay Bombay has been screening some interesting LGBT themed movies at their private screening since years. The coming month marks the 20th anniversary of Gay Bombay since it was formed in 1998. GayBombay (GB) will be screening two highly acclaimed international queer films, Call Me By Your Name and God’s Own Country and a short documentary by Sopan Muller on the “Battle Against 377 – the story of IIT group Petition”
A month-long celebration of diversity and togetherness will be seen amongst the LGBT community as there will be multiple events lined up by Gay Bombay during the coming month starting with their Saturday night party on 25th Aug.
Call Me By Your Name
Call Me by Your Name is a 2017 coming-of-age romantic drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by James Ivory. It is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman . The movie also won an academy award for the best writing adapted screenplay earlier this year. However, India didn’t see the release of the movie. So its even more important for GayBombay to screen such awesome movies for the community here in India.
Gods Own Country
Spring. Yorkshire. Young farmer Johnny Saxby numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex until the arrival of a Romanian migrant worker for lambing season ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path.
The screening is scheduled this Sunday, 26th Aug at G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture Shakti Mills Lane, Mahalakshmi West, Mumbai, 1:30 P onwards.
