On VOD: BOYS WHO LIKE GIRLS

New to OVID.tv last week:
BOYS WHO LIKE GIRLS

Director:
Inka Achté

World Premiere:
Sheffield 2018

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Bergen, Sao Paulo, Nordisk Panorama, Helsinki

About:
Indian men and boys seek to break the cycle of gendered violence.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
In the aftermath of the infamous Delhi gang rape, one man works to change the way Indian boys view females. Harish and his nonprofit are devoted to educating impoverished male youth like Ved to respect women and girls. Despite the progress the activist makes in combating toxic masculinity, Harish struggles to find funding because his work is focused on males. Provoking and thoughtful, Inka Achté’s film is a tender tale of activism in the midst of a furious global discussion on gendered violence.
