The broadcast premiere of “Indelible Lalita,” a film by Julie Mallozzi (Critic, FAV) is scheduled for Monday, May 13, 2013. The film recently won the Audience Award at the Women, Action & the Media Film Festival.
“Indelible Lalita” tells the story of a beautiful woman whose resilient spirit survives her body’s transformation by cancer, heart failure and a dramatic loss of skin pigment. Meditatively flowing between surface and interior, the film follows Lalita as she migrates from Bombay to Paris to Montreal, and becomes completely White along the way. Lalita learns to let go of her body as the sign of her ethnicity and femininity – and ultimately realizes that her body is just a temporary vessel for her spirit.
