Actor Ian McKellen introduces an important documentary on gay rights, on the tenth anniversary of the birth of the Gay Liberation
Movement after the Stonewall riots in New York.
In 1986, the city of New York passed a gay rights bill, and mayor Edward Koch predicted that the sky would not fall. But the hearings and demonstrations that led up to this event became a focus for the inflammatory subject of the rights of lesbians and gay men. This highly praised documentary, which won top awards at the Chicago and San Francisco International Film
Festivals, follows events in the city council chambers and out on the streets to capture the full range of passionately held views, from gay activists to religious fundamentalists. Produced by PHIL ZWICKLER and JANE LIPPMAN

The Voyage Beyond (Antarjali Yatra)
[Bengal in the 1830s. A dying octogenarian is brought to his cremation site on the banks of the Ganges, only for his astrologer to announce that he is destined to enter heaven with a mate. An impoverished fellow-Brammin, offers up his own daughter for marriage and 'suttee' - the burning on the pyre of the widowed bride. However, the proximity of such nubile youthfulness leads to signs of revival in the old man. The conflict between outlawed convention and irrepressible human desires is observed with compassion and wry humour, highlighted by sensitive camerawork.
Screenplay by GOUTAM GHOSE from a story by KAMAL KUMAR MAJUMDAR. Produced by RAVI MALIK and DEBASHISH MAJUMDAR
Directed by GOUTAM GHOSE
