I AmDir. Sonali Gulati. 74 min. 2011. India
Having lost the opportunity to tell her mother that she is a lesbian, a young Indian filmmaker in search of answers travels across India to meet with parents of other gay and lesbian South Asians. I Am is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a landscape where being gay was, until recently, a criminal and punishable offense. With courage, determination, and humor, families share untold stories that have thus far remained in the realm of secrecy and silence. It is a unique and groundbreaking film that defies the very genre of documentary filmmaking.
