On the final day, the film Satyavati directed by Deepthi Tadanki will be screened. The nation and the world are speaking in support of LGBTQ rights and awareness. Where are you? Satyavati is an important film because it is one of the few to speak about the horror of corrective rape. 

Corrective rape is one such practice, where often, the victim’s own parents arrange for a close relative to rape their son or daughter, with the misguided belief that this will change their sexual orientation. The film screening of Satyavati is being curated in association with Queer Arts Movement India.
