Hello Darling! a Riyad Wadia film festival

Riyad Wadia was India’s first out gay film director. Sadly, he died in November of 2003 at age 37, after having made just three films: Fearless: The Hunterwali Story, A Mermaid Called Aida, and BOMgAY. Riyad’s signature greeting was “Hello Darling!”

Hello Darling! – in program one – screens Riyad’s three films together for the first time to a Toronto audience on the first anniversary of his death.

Inspired perhaps by Riyad’s example, Indian films makers have begun making openly queer-themed films. Hello Darling! – in program two – screens: Summer In My Veins, Gulaibi Aaina (the Pink Mirror), and re-screens BOMgAY.

Door open, 1:15pm
Program One, 2:00pm, $5.00
Program Two, 5:00pm, $5.00
