Beholder from Nisha Ganatra on Vimeo.
Beholder takes place in the biosphere-protected Red Estates, a gated community with a socially conservative political majority where all members have been explicitly bred for their social roles. At a clinic where patients can genetically engineer their children, Sasha, the wife of rising political star Bobby Aryana, is informed that her baby carries the genetic marker for homosexuality. By the laws of Red Estates, this is an aberration that must be dealt with immediately, and Sasha finds her rethinking her allegiances as well as mulling over secrets in her own past. Touching on issues of race, sexual orientation, and conformity, Beholder examines the notion of identity and the costs of belonging.
