Selig Polyscope Company says
Gloriously audacious in its presentation of Indian women in all their complexity and sexuality, Alankrita Shrivastava’s high-spirited—and sometimes hilarious—second feature tracks its four heroines as they seek liberation from oppressive gender codes.

A young mother and secret saleswoman; a college student hiding her partying from her parents; a beautician who enjoys a healthy sex life with her boyfriend yet is condemned to a limpid arranged marriage; an older woman whose addiction to erotic fiction threatens to spill over into real life: the ladies in LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA are each bursting with ideas and appetites that no social order can crush.

The Screening is sponsored by the Selig Polyscope Company and co-presented by the DFW South Asian Film Festival.

India, 2016, 132 min., Color, Hindi and English with English subtitles
