Indie Meme presents LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA 116 minutes / India / English subtitles Director: Alankrita Shrivastava
Trapped in their own worlds, four women claim their desires through secret acts of rebellion.
In rural India, a burkha-clad college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to become a pop singer. A young two-timing beautician seeks to escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An oppressed housewife and mother of three lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. A 55-year-old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance. Caught in a conservative society, these women set forth to break the mold, in search of a little freedom.
