Film Screening and Gender Seminar

Bunty, Kamal, Sanjay and Sanju, best of friends and residents of Jehangirpuri, a working class colony on the outskirts of Delhi are young and trying to make their lives in an environment which is changing rapidly… girls seem to be very bold… stable jobs are not easy to come by… sex is a strange mix of guilt and pleasure… families are claustrophobic… and the blur of television the only sounding board…

The documentary (When Four Friends, 43 min, 2000, Majma, 54 min, 2001) is part of a South Asia based project under which four films have been made in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal exploring masculinities.

Cosponsored with the Department of South Asian Studies, Harvard Asia Center, Political Anthropology Working Group, The Sensory Ethnography Lab, and The Film Study Center
