I am raising funds to produce a feature film inspired by true events of domestic violence. The funds raised will go towards the priniciple photography and associated activities. I am trying to tell a truth. Join me!
When I was looking for a subject for my next story, I knew I wanted to do something that would contribute to our community in someway. I wanted my story to come out with a social message. And just then I came across an article that spoke about a homosexual man suffering from domestic violence.
I decided to do more research in the subject and more I dug, more I felt that our LGBTQ friends and family members are as vulnerable as any straight person is and yet this is something which is not so much spoken about. This is something that people don’t think about because there is a silence. The silence that our LGBTQ friends suffer in. And there are many reasons behind this silence. Fear of being judged, religious faith pressure and trust issue are just some of them. The whole LGBTQ reality is still considered a taboo in many countries.
Hence, I came up with the film idea of QAID (Trapped). The film is inspired by true events that I came across and includes elements of reality that viewers will be able to relate to. The aim of the film is to make the world aware of the truth that the abuse can happen to any human being and is not gender based at all.
The film is in Hindi language which highlights the stigma around the subject in different countries. Apart from this, the film also touches the elements of children witnessing domestic abuse, possible reasons behind abusers actions and also effects of lockdown on different lives.
In a nutshell, It’s an attempt to tell the world something. It’s an attempt to bring awareness in our society. It’s an attempt to highlight the presence of a silence. It’s an attempt to bring a sense of equality and inclusion in the world we live in. It’s an attempt to tell everyone that it can happen to any human being regardless of gender.
