"i am" Film Screening & Talk with Filmmaker Sonali Gulati

What do parents say when they find out their child is gay? Eleven years after her mother’s death, lesbian filmmaker Sonali Gulati returns to her hometown of New Delhi, India, to clean out her house and make peace with the parent she never came out to. Gulati interviewed 21 Indian families over the course of five years to unravel the intricacies and difficulties of coming out in India.
