I am a Whisper, My Dear (An ethnofiction film, in collaboration with Mizo LGBT activists)

Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Kahin Center
640 Stewart Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Part of the Ronald and Janette Gatty series

Mariangela Mihai, Department of Anthropology, Southeast Asia Program, South Asia Program at Cornell University 

Seven LGBT activists struggle at the edges of the Mizo and Indian societies to reconcile their Christian, Mizo, and Indigenous identities. Bravely facing their shared lack of futurity, their poetic meditations rise up to offer a counter-voice to the indigenous customary laws and religious life of the Mizo society which bound them to land, family and Church in seemingly inescapable ways.
