365 Without 377
Directed by Adele Tulli
One of the legacies of British colonial rule in India was section 377, which criminalized homosexuality.
Almost 150 years after it became part of India’s penal code, section 377 was repealed and India’s LGBT
community rejoiced. 365 without 377 documents the repeal’s one-year anniversary, and follows three members of India’s queer community as they celebrate.
The film offers a vivid glimpse into a community and country on the cusp of change, and notes that conservative religious leaders have mounted a legal fight against the repeal.

Patang, directed by Prashant Bhargava, which was showcased at 3rd i’s Film Festival in 2011, will have its Theatrical Release in June 2012. Patang will screen at Fremont’s Big Cinemas, starting June 29th.
A southern Gothic family saga transposed to India, Patang weaves the intersecting narratives of its six characters into the lively bustle of Uttarayan, India’s largest kite festival.
“The storytelling is effortlessly made part of the hypnotically beautiful visuals, and woven into a kaleidoscope of colors, faces, music and a little romance. Bhargava is masterful” – Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
June 29th – July 5th, Fremont, CA – Big Cinemas
