Film Screening- The Kids Are All Right- 26 Feb, 2011





TIME:
Saturday, Feb 26, 2011
3PM-6PM

LOCATION:
A-20 Basement, Lajpat Nagar III
New Delhi

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


◄The Naz Foundation's Milan Centre and QueerCampus India invite you to the screening of The Kids Are All Right.►

The film, released this year in America, is a dramedy with a smart yet sensitive message concerning family values. The themes of betrayal, anger, love and pain which are portrayed in this movie are such that any family could relate. The film is currently nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor.

This is the first screening, in a series of films we will show every 1st or 3rd Saturday of the month at Naz's Milan Centre. The screening will be followed by a group discussion. Email invites will be sent prior to each screening. Entry is free and open to all!

Film Synopsis: Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) are a married lesbian couple living in California. They have each given birth to a child using the same anonymous sperm donor. Nic, an obstetrician, is the primary breadwinner and the stricter parent, while Jules is more laid back and lives as a housewife who is starting up a landscape design business.

The younger child Laser (Josh Hutcherson) is eager to find his biological father, but has to be 18 to find the identity of the sperm donor. He begs his 18-year-old sister Joni (Mia Wasikowska) to contact the sperm bank in order to meet their biological father, Paul (Mark Ruffalo). The first meeting goes well. Find out what happens then this Saturday, 3pm!

◄QueerCampus India invites you to join us for our public meeting at Yodakin Bookstore ►

Our regular public meetings are informal support spaces for queer youth. And we wholeheartedly invite participation from everyone who believes in what we stand for! This is your space to speak your mind, share your experiences with respect to coming out to family, friends, realization of your sexuality, your specific interests or what you expe...ct from a queer youth support group like QCI.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of our aims at the meeting would also be to understand the term 'queer'- how we relate it to different aspects of our life and the society at large. Feel free to bring along any relevant material/text on your part- newspaper articles, magazines or a book.

The text that we have selected for the above discussion includes two chapters from the book, 'Because I Have A Voice', by Arvind Narrain and Gautam Bhan.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#We'll start discussion with the 'Introduction' chapter which can be read online at the Google book preview.
