When Kiran Met Karen to screen at Switzerland Film Festival


Mumbai: When Kiran Met Karen will screen on 7 and 8 November at the Queersicht Film Festival, Bern, Switzerland.  Written, produced and directed by Manan Singh Katohora, the film explores the theme of lesbianism and bravely pushes the boundaries of a taboo romance within the South Asian culture.

When Kiran Met Karen stars Samrat Chakrabarti, Chriselle Almeida, Kelli Holsopple, Manish Dayal, Shetal Shah, Iggy Ignatius, and Tirlok Malik. Members of the crew include production manager Hiral Shah, production designer Tushar Unadkat, editor Matt Thomas and producer/cinematographer Punit Chhabra.  The film also features the music of Deadbeat Darling and Katherine Almeida.

"It is absolutely amazing how this movie has come together after two years of hard work and perseverance," said Katohora, "I’m thrilled that we were able to put together such a talented cast and crew, and create a quality film.  I’m just disappointed that there are not enough movies out there that showcase the honest exploration of a female’s sexuality."
