Wow Lipstick Under My Burkha To Open Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles 2017

The film “Lipstick Under My Burkha” by Alankrita Shrivastava, which failed to get a certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in India, will be the opening movie at the 15th edition of Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) next month between April 5-9 in Los Angeles. Revolving around four women — a burqa-clad college girl, a young beautician, a mother of three and a 55-year-old widow who rediscovers her sexuality — “Lipstick Under My Burkha” features actors like Ratna Pathak Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma and Aahana Kumra.

The director of programming Mr. Mike Dougherty issued a statement saying, “As India’s diverse array of talented filmmakers continues to be recognized around the world for their compelling and daring work, IFFLA is extremely proud to collect the best films from emerging voices and experienced masters and present them to Los Angeles.”

Thy film has been deemed too “lady oriented” in content and according to the censor board, it is laced with sexual scenes and abusive words. But this is also a film that won a gender equality award at the Mumbai film fest last year, and recently won the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival.

IIFLA, which will conclude with Shubhashish Bhutiani’s directorial “Hotel Salvation”, will also feature documentaries like “The Cinema Travelers”, “Machines” and “An Insignificant Man”. There will also be 10 short films in nine languages including Gurvinder Singh’s “Infiltrator”, Amar Kaushik’s “Aaba” and Sonejuhi Sinha’s “Miles of Sand”. A host of filmmakers including Adoor Gopalakrishnan, who will make US premiere of his film “Once Again” in Malayalam, will attend the fest.
