Join us for a screening and Q&A with filmmaker and visual anthropologist, Harjant Gill. Gill will be showing his short film Mardistan (Macholand), an exploration of Indian manhood from the point of view of four men from different generations and backgrounds. Together, their stories address critical issues including patriarchy, sexual violence, and homophobia in a nation increasingly defined by social inequalities.

Harjant Gill is associate professor of anthropology at Towson University. He is an award-winning filmmaker and anthropologist whose work examines the intersections of masculinity, modernity, and transnational migration in India. His films include Milind Soman Made Me Gay, Mardistan (Macholand), Roots of Love, and Sent Away Boys.
