The Saints of Sin
English Film (85 mins)
The Saints of Sin is a lyrical journey of emotion and experiences of seven-and-a-half Bengali women spread across the globe, from Nairobi to New York to New Delhi and Mumbai. Built on intimate conversations recorded over three years, the film explores their lives, in which each one acknowledges her propensity towards one of the sins and speaks of her negotiations with it. The women recount their stories with searing honesty and talk about their struggle against entrenched patriarchal notions, family expectations and the pressures of their own conscience socialised over centuries. By meeting their sin, they find the chance to form new forms of affection and adventures and are no longer prisoners of their memories or mistakes.
Directed by Aniruddha Sen
