QFest and CAMH Present MARGARITA WITH A STRAW
Thursday, February 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
MARGARITA, WITH A STRAW is the deeply moving story of Laila, a rebellious young woman (played unforgettably by Kalki Koechlin) with cerebral palsy who leaves her sheltered life in India for college in New York City. This coming-of-age story shows an unexpected love story and follows the lead character on a remarkable journey of self-discovery.
Shown in conjunction with the exhibition Dissent and Desire, this film shares an intimate story of an Indian girl’s everyday life in India while also exploring issues around ability, sexuality, friendship, and family.
Admission is free and open to the public.
