Yeh Freedom Life (2019) (Arts Weeks 2020: Online)

Venue: Online

Book your place

Book a place to access a link to view the filmYeh Freedom Life (2019). Priya Sen’s debut documentary feature film thoughtfully explores uncertain love in Delhi. 

Filmed over the course of a year in Ambedkar Nagar, a dense, largely working class area in South Delhi, Yeh Freedom Life moves between the two very different worlds of its protagonists, Sachi and Parveen, feverishly trying to keep up with the currents and swings of their respective loves. Sachi works at a local beauty parlour; Parveen runs the family’s small cigarette counter at a crowded intersection. Surrounded by a cacophonous city, Delhi-based filmmaker Priya Sen charts their pursuit of, according to Sachi, their “freedom lives” – an open existence outside of the constant scrutiny and sanction of society and family.

The link will be sent out to registered attendees from 15 June. Plus learn about the film and its making in this podcast discussion between the director and Birkbeck geographer and teacher on the MA/MSc Cities, Melissa Butcher (spoiler alert).

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Weeks 2020: Online.
