Film Screening

The Great Indian Kitchen

Director: Jeo Baby
Cast: Nimisha Sajayan, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Ajitha V.M.
India 2020, 100 mins, Malayalam with English subtitles

There have been many films that discuss patriarchy, but you've never seen patriarchy brought to life in such an impactful and cinematic way. It's a singular and uniquely immersive experience that takes you into the life of a newly married girl, as you experience her day-to-day routine of tending to the needs of her husband and in-laws. What begins as routine and responsibility slowly becomes nothing short of a harrowing ordeal. Not only is it phenomenal filmmaking, The Great Indian Kitchen is a penetrating portrait of the life that too many women Indian lead.

You can keep yourself and others safe by:

You should NOT attend a festival event if you have Covid-19 symptoms.

The main symptoms of Covid-19 are:

  • A high temperature
  • A new, continuous cough, this is a lot of coughing for more than one hour or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
