"Stands apart from the crowd, intimate and lovely." Tju-Bang Film

Exploring the relationship between employer and servant, this is a delicate and brave documentary which asks how two women negotiate the ingrained social and cultural attitudes that govern their lives. Based in Mumbai, Indian film-maker Jain turns the camera on her maid Lakshmi and finds that the delicate boundaries of their tentative friendship are put to the test through Lakshmi's unexpected pregnancy and illness. This screening will be accompanied by Mira Nair's short film, Migration, and followed by a Q&A with director Jain.

In partnership with Tongues on Fire.
