- dicussions the gender roles and watching films
Pradipta Ray will talk about the largest film industry in the world. Hindi cinema is not only one of the largest entertainment industries but also a powerful and rare documentation of the social and cultural changes in this complex and diverse nation called India. Hindi cinema has indeed unconsciously or consciously documented the social changes that India has undergone since cinema came to India. Understanding the gender roles would further facilitate the understanding of the positioning of the transgenders in the social fabric and why they are outnumbered in the battle of the sexes.
