 Screen International describes it as follows: “A wistful, meandering gay love story… in India, where homosexuality is punishable by law, this gentle film is quietly  revolutionary.”love

 

“Loev,” which will play in the festival’s ‘Visions’ section, was filmed entirely in Mumbai and Mahabaleshwar amid much secrecy owing to Section 377, which outlaws homosexuality.
