SISAK. THE ROAR OF SILENCE!

SISAK. THE ROAR OF SILENCE!

Faraz Ansari

In 2018, the Supreme Court in India finally struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, an archaic 19th century law introduced by the British, criminalising homosexuality. In 2017, Director Faraz Ansari had filmed ‘Sisak’, a 20 minutes’ silent foray into the lives of two men caught in a web of profound love — not knowing how to express it, defeated as they are by social conventions and taboos. Shot entirely in the compartment of a local train, ‘Sisak’ has since its release, won over 55 international awards.
