We are hosting the 23rd edition of UK Asian Film Festival 2021. Please join us for a screening of documentary In Thunder Lightning and Rain by Rajesh James. Followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with the director. Co – Programmed by Vasudha Wantu.
In Thunder Lightning and Rain depicts the endurance of three women against their ostracisation in society. The three women – a footballer, a fisher and a cremator – tell their sagas of woes and weal, resistance and endurance in the film. These three contemporary Shakespearian witches are etched against the carnivalesque urban space of Fort Kochi. They visit the masculine space of carnival. The camera intently listens to them with an intense zeal to film their identity.
