Wednesday, Aug 17 2011
At 3rd i’s Queer Eye tonight, the South Asian independent film festival screens Asoka Handagama’s 2002 feature, Flying with One Wing. It’s billed as “A Sri Lankan cross between Fassbinder and Boys Don’t Cry,” and it looks amazing. The second night of this minifestival involves live performances on the subject of queer lives in India, Pakistan, and beyond: Aniruddhan Vasudevan contributes a performance-monologue, Brihannala. Minal Hajratwala, just back from a Fulbright in India, reads from her book of poetry, The Unicorn at the Racetrack, as well as from her upcoming novel set 500 years in the future and the past.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
