FLYING INSIDE MY BODY
(India/ 2008/ 35 min)
Sumit Sharma, Rintu Thomas, Sushmit Ghosh, Ajeeta Chowhan

The film is a journey with veteran photographer Sunil Gupta, who uses his art to document queer people and histories while challenging stereotypes about the body, sexuality and identity. The film's lyrical style marries still photography with moving images and text, to unfold an intensely personal narrative that questions the deeply ingrained prejudices that we carry within ourselves.


Sumit Sharma, Rintu Thomas, Sushmit Ghosh
and Ajeeta Chowhan are recent graduates from the AJK Mass Communication Research Centre, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. Flying Inside My Body was their Masters thesis project.
