About the Event

KHEJDI

Directed by Rohit Dwivedi

(2018; 92 min.; India; Hindi with English subtitles; Color; Digital)

In a remote distant village of Rajasthan a transgender child is born to the only Ayurvedic Doctor [Baidji] of the Village. He scares the villagers by telling them that a girl is born and is unlucky and if anyone see’s her face his or her family will be completely destroyed. Baidji gives khejdi a life within the mud walls of his house. After 18 years through a peep hole, Khejdi starts exploring the outside world. In this process she does even explore the two distinctive human bodies. Seeing naked human bodies, different questions start running in her head. Confusing her, making her question her own identity, who is she? boy or girl?
