Our November Screen 2 film will be Joyland...

As the happily-patriarchal Rana family longs for the birth of a baby boy, the youngest of the Rana men secretly joins an erotic dance theatre and finds himself falling for a fiercely ambitious trans starlet. Their impossible love story slowly illuminates the entire Rana family's desire for a sexual rebellion.

'A tender story that feels like a novel in its minute detail, this is a film about self-discovery in a place where self-discovery can be dangerous.' Ben Turner, The Pink Lens

'A deeply affecting and accomplished first film.' Lael Leowenstein, Film Week Los Angeles
