Storyline

In 1995, Indian Government charged Bollywood superstar Milind Soman with 'obscenity' for appearing nude in a shoe advertisement. Under the rhetoric of preserving nation's morality, these charges were carried-out using old colonial laws that are still evoked to restrict desire & persecute homosexuality in India today. Milind Soman Made Me Gay is a conceptual documentary about desire & notions of home & belonging. The film employs a unique mix of visual elements along with voice over narration to juxtapose memories of the filmmaker's own past against lives of three gay South Asian men living in the diaspora. Overshadowing these nostalgic explorations of life 'back home,' are harsh realities of homophobia & racism in USA. Written by Tilotama Productions
