Panel Discussion “Representations of Queer API Women

Pratibha Parmar has deeply influenced mixed-genre
filmmaking since the 80’s and she continues to bring
fresh representations of queer women of color to the

influential films: KHUSH, an exploration of queer
South Asians in diaspora; BHANGRA JIG, a celebration
of culture and desire; WAVELENGTHS, a quest for love
and intimacy in cyberspace.
