A first-of-its-kind silent LGBTQ short film set in India, Sisak makes waves before the visuals of this film hit the shore.
Set in bustling Mumbai and its local rail system, Sisak is a romance that develops slowly and intoxicatingly, nestled in the silences and quiet comforts of a train journey. Conversations in Sisak are almost primal in execution, without the use of speech, through body language and games of the mind. In a return to the unspoken, unsaid, and universal expressions of love, Sisak is the result of the belief that if love knows no bounds, it need not be bound by words either.
Sisak is presented as part of Too Desi Too Queer, a selection of LGBTIQ+ short films curated by Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival.
