Tasveer says
CELEBRATING SOUTH ASIAN ADOPTION JOURNEYS
For the 10th Aaina, Tasveer presents a film and panel discussion focused on South Asian women adoptees. Although part of the South Asian diaspora, the voices and journeys of South Asian women who were adopted to the United States as children all too often are overlooked by the larger community. Lifting up adoption journeys broadens our collective understanding of what it means to be a South Asian woman in America.

YOU FOLLOW: A SEARCH FOR ONE’S PAST
In 2009, Nisha Grayson packed her bags with four of her closest friends and set out on a journey from the home she had known for 28 years in Sacramento CA, off to her birthplace in Goa, India–it was a quest for answers, family and true identity. You Follow chronicles the experiences of an adoptee with a mind full of questions and heart full of determination. In its essence, You Follow is a compelling story about resilience, family and identity.

LOST SAREES PANEL DISCUSSION
Following the film, a panel of South Asian women adoptees will draw connections between the film and audience to the themes of women’s agency, voice, resilience, culture, family and empowerment. The panel, moderated by Anjulie Ganti, will feature the founders of Lost Sarees, Stephanie Kripa Cooper-Lewter, and Rebecca Peacock and the film subject Nisha Grayson. Lost Sarees focuses on uniting Indian adoptees and building bridges to South Asian communities through arts, education and advocacy.
