Project Description

INDIA’S 1ST BEST TRANS MODEL AGENCY

This emotionally charged journey, filmed over 4 years, chronicles the pain and pride of Rudrani and the trans community of Delhi as they set about creating India’s first transgender model agency. We journey with her through the brothels, temples and traffic lights where Hijras beg or bless. Even as her models pose for the cameras in a modern studio, we reveal their heart-rending struggles to survive. In a world of prejudice, violence and marginalisation, can they win a place on the catwalk?
Co-production with Spring Films, UK.
