After multiple screenings at festivals worldwide, Indian gay love story, “Loev,” will have its North American premiere March 12 at the prestigious 2016 SXSW Film Festival in Texas.
The gay-themed relationship drama stars Shiv Pandit, Dhruv Ganesh and Siddharth Menon. A weekend trip between friends takes a sudden turn, making them each examine what love is and what it means to them.
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.”
“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.
