Transindia to screen at Never Apart exhbition in Montreal

Really excited to announce that Transindia will be part of the Never Apart exhbition ‘Traces of life: a look from Canada to South Asia’ in Montreal, Canada! Thanks so much to curator, Mariette Raina. There will be a special projection of the film followed by a discussion on gender and spirituality.
