Film by Sushmit Ghosh
Flying Inside My Body explores how the form of the body can become a powerful physical language to express dissent over societal norms and conventions. The film is a journey with veteran photographer Sunil Gupta, who has used his art to challenge the stereotypes that define one’s body, sexuality and identity. Gupta has spent over 20 years compiling the first photographic chronicle of the gay community in India, while at the same time, exploring his own relationship with his country of origin. 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 all carry within ourselves.
