Frameline40: June 16-26, 2016
Frameline40, the San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival, celebrates its 40th anniversary this month, and 3rd i Films is pleased to participate by co-presenting two screenings of Loev.
Sahil, a quirky music producer in Mumbai, has hit a rough patch with his boyfriend Alex. That’s just when Sahil’s longtime friend Jai, a successful and handsome Wall Street deal maker, arrives back in India on a business trip. Jai’s visit gives Sahil the perfect excuse to drop Alex for a bit and escape for a few days’ getaway in the gorgeous countryside with Jai. While the friends enjoy their remarkable rapport at first, differences soon begin to arise—emotions and tensions bubble to the surface until they finally explode in a way that threatens to impact the lives of all three men for a long time to come.
Loev is a landmark film, honestly exploring gay relationships in India, where, to this day, same-sex love is punishable by harsh prison sentences.
