Rex vs Singh

Rex vs Singh
Title: Rex vs. Singh
Directors: Richard Fung, John Greyson, Ali Kazimi
Original Language: English, Punjabi
Running Time: 30 minutes
Country: Canada
Year: 2009

In 1915, two Sikh mill-workers, Dalip Singh and Naina Singh, were entrapped by undercover police in Vancouver and accused of sodomy. This witty experimental movie tells their story four times by three different directors: as a period drama, as a contemporary investigation of the case, as a musical and finally, as a deconstruction of the actual court transcript.

This film will be screened on Sunday, November 20th 2011 at Indian Social Institute. Return to film schedule.

About Nigah

Nigah is a non-funded queer collective that works on issues of gender and sexuality. Apart from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, we understand queer to be any identity, politics or process that challenges dominant norms. Based in Delhi since 2003, we try to create inclusive and safe queer spaces using media, workshops and discussions. We organise events each month and entry to all the events is free.
