CGiii Comment

Buy a tripod, learn how and when to say 'cut' and don't let your subject babble on endlessly.

It really is just an advert for 'Aangan' made with neither flair nor creativity.

No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

In the world of insensitivity and insecurity, some plants of the new generation of LGBTQI+ community members especially transgenders are flourishing in the courtyard of their Maai (Mother). Pushpa maai, a transgender activist and the founder of Nai Bhor organization in the pink city Jaipur. Aangan 'a blooming space' is the mirror of the lives of some members of trans community who are living there and sharing about their journey of being themselves, under the nourishment and guidance of Pushpa Maai. This is not only about the struggle or the problems what they have faced in their lives but more about their journey of knowing and accepting about themselves. As 'Aangan' is an open area of house and it symbolizes the sense of independence when anyone sit there, same with the shorts, it will show the freeness in their words, their actions and in their emotions. Their dreams will fly in the sky through this openness of this space; They have sown the plants of their dreams to bloom.
