Sir

Rohena Gera | 99min | Indien, Frankrike

  • År: 2018
  • Språk: Engelska, Hindi, Marathi
  • Text: Svensk
  • Originaltitel: Sir
  • Nordisk Premiär

Ett intelligent och överraskande drama om kärlek över klassgränserna i det moderna Bombay, som prisats i Cannes.

Regissören och manusförfattaren Rohena Geras första spelfilm är ett finstämt och elegant kammarspel om herrskap och tjänstefolk i dagens indiska samhälle. Ratna drömmer om att designa kläder, men eftersom hon är av lägre kast är hennes förutsättningar näst intill obefintliga. Istället får hon jobb som hembiträde hos Ashwin, en man från en förmögen familj som lever ett ganska trist singelliv högt upp i en av Bombays skyskrapor. Ashwin verkar ha gett upp sina drömmar, medan Ratna lever på hoppet. Deras världar kolliderar, men trots deras olikheter blir det ett möte som förändrar deras liv för alltid.

- Johan Blomqvist

Starting her career at Paramount Pictures Literary Affairs office in New York in 1996, Rohena has since worked in a range of roles from Assistant Director to screenwriter to independent producer/director.

I’ve grappled with this class difference that exists in India all my life. When I was a child I lived in India and we had live with help in the house, and that was how we grew up. As a child there was someone who was my nanny, and she took care of me and I was very close to her, but there was clear segregation. I always had trouble with this dynamic, even as a child, and I didn’t really know how to understand it. I then went to study in the US for my undergrad, and I was at Stanford talking about ideology and philosophy, and then I would come home, and everything was the same. It was very difficult coming in and out of India, and as much as you might want to change things you can’t change them over night. I kept asking myself – what can we do?
