After missing the opportunity to come out to her own mother, an Indian-American lesbian filmmaker travels to India to meet with parents of gay men and women.
"I Am" is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a country where homosexuality was a criminal offence until recently. With daring determination and humor, parents in India share untold stories of their gay and lesbian children.
The story and characters might be local, but the movie reflects a challenge that is facing a global community. This is a film about a contemporary social justice issue that re-opens international dialogue around sexuality and human rights.
"I Am" is one of the films spotlighted in our new documentary series, "Link Voices."
