TUFF Eunuch Movie Movin’ On

The Celestial Brides, a documentary short about Indian eunuchs getting married to “the warrior deity, Aravan,” just played at the Tribeca Underground Film Festival and will next be screened at the Boston International Film Festival on June 9.

This Indian news site says the doc got an “honorable mention” at TUFF, even though it wasn’t listed with the other award winners, so I don’t know if that’s true. Nor do I know if it actually got a standing ovation. If anyone who saw the film at TUFF and wants to tell us if they stood or not, please leave a comment. Sounds like a very interesting film, though.

I’m posting this up just because I wanted to write about Indian eunuchs.
