Transgender Nun – Rights and Rites

Transgender Nun - Rights and Rites

A video by Arvind Raj

Transitioning from a man to a woman is but the first change in Sharan’s life. She wants to become a nun by dedicating her life to Bauchara Matha, a deity who is known to be the protector of the transgender community. The filmmaker follows Sharan on a journey of several rituals that are rarely performed and never recorded on film before.

Proses perubahan dari seorang lelaki ke wanita hanyalah perubahan yang pertama dalam kehidupan Sharan. Dia ingin menjadi seorang rahib yang rela mengorbankan kehidupan beliau kepada Bauchara Matha — seorang dewa yang dikenali sebagai pelindung komuniti transgender. Dalam filem ini, pengarah filem mengikuti Sharan dalam pengalaman beliau melalui beberapa upacara keagamaan yang jarang dilakukan apatah lagi dirakam dalam bentuk filem.
