Chuppan Chupai (Hide and Seek)

Documentary Denmark Pakistan 2013

"Playing hide-and-seek": this is what the title means in Urdu. It's a metaphor for the difficult, dangerous and painful condition of many homosexual people in Pakistan, who are often victims of abuse from childhood. The film presents the experiences, the interior conflicts, the rights they are denied, the distress and, above all, the impossibility of loving in a country deeply influenced by Islam. Jenny is a transgender university student, who has recently been castrated. Kami is a cross dresser, a practice adopted by both transvestites and homosexual people who want to be accepted. Kami decides to live together with her macho boyfriend, Waseem, challenging strict taboos. Finally, the story of Neeli, who has had an important role in the recent decision by the Supreme Court to legalize the "third gender" (but not homosexuality). This is an exposé documentary that is also full of music and dance sequences.
