I write reviews of my favourite films, books and other media on this page

A Gendered Perspective of the film Transamerica (2005)

Transamerica (2005) portrays the journey of a pre-operative male-to-female transsexual , Bree after she learns of fathering a son eighteen years ago. Bree and her bisexual son Toby’s subcultured gender identities challenge the normative discourses of gender and sexuality prelevant in our society.

The Story Of The Weeping Camel (2003) : A Docudrama

I grew up watching docos on Nat Geo and Discovery, dreaming someday I will be out there making one. I came across Story Of The Weeping Camel in 2009 when I had to write a comparative essay on different documentary styles. This one blew me away- the film is an ethnographic docu drama. A camel, its colt and a nomad family are its central characters.
