Midnight Blues

Please join the Independent Film Circle on Zoom next Saturday, June 11th at 10:30am EST for a screening of the 30-minute film “Midnight Blues” followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker Bipuljit Basu.

“Midnight Blues” is about the director’s work with the children of sex workers growing up in one of Kolkata’s red light districts. Bipuljit Basu is an impact filmmaker, author, and producer of Indian hybrid cinema and documentaries. His goal is to bring less known South Asian marginal stories into mainstream film and media.
