Event Title  Lipstick Under My Burkha
Posted Date  14/2/2017
Event Place  London

'Lipstick Under My Burkha' is a film about four females tangled up in a traditional, conservative society, seeking freedom from their monotonous lives. A burkha-clad college girl aspiring to be a pop-singer with all the trimmings, a care-free and two-timing beautician seeking escape from her claustrophobic town, an oppressed housewife who is not just a baby-making machine but a well-earning saleswoman, and widower, Auntie Usha, living through fictional character Rosy. This film courageously gives voice to every female who is hiding secret dreams and inner desires. Starring Ratna Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Aahana Kumra, and Plabita Borthakur.

This screening of 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' is being shown in association with Oxfam at the London Asian Film Festival. The event will be preceded by a drinks reception and followed by a panel discussion - 'Women in Film' joined by the noted film actress and director Kalki Koechlin, Oxfam India CEO Nisha Agrawal, Professor of Gender and Development at LSE Dr Naila Kabeer, and British actor and writer Natalie Perera.
