QFFM WARM UP:
U FOR USHA
IND 2019, 22 MIN
DIRECTION: ROHAN KANAWADE
CAST: ARPITA GHOGARDARE, HRIDAYNATH JADHAV, KIRAN KHOJE
Usha is a single mother and field worker in rural India. When she meets the local primary school teacher, deep feelings grow in the young woman as she had never felt them before. Driven by the desire to be close to her and finally learn to read and write, Usha takes the risk. A decision that will change her life forever.
The sensitive audience winner film of our last pre-Christmas short film night – Queer Mixtape 2019, subtly tells the story of a young woman‘s sexual awakening and the budding feelings that enable her to take her life into her own hands from now on. A strong and affectionate narrative that gets you in the mood for our programme one day before the festival begins.
