JOYLAND Los Angeles Film Screening and Live Q & A

Following last weekend's record-breaking debut at Film Forum in NYC; CAA Arts Access, Oscilloscope Laboratories, Columbia University Entertainment, Columbia Pride, and Columbia SoCal are hosting another special screening and Q&A in Los Angeles at Landmark's Nuart Theatre!

After an amazing year on the festival circuit including showings at the Cannes (Winner: Jury Prize - Un Certain Regard), Toronto International, and Sundance film festivals, Joyland, written and directed by Saim Sadiq '19SOA and co-written by Maggie Briggs '19SOA will go into wide release this spring via Oscilloscope. Join us as we celebrate this important occasion with a special screening of the film followed by a live Q&A! The film was also edited by Jasmin Tenucci '20SOA and produced by Apoorva Charan '18SOA and Katharina Otto-Bernstein '86CC, '92SOA.

As the Ranas - a happily patriarchal joint family - yearn for the birth of a baby boy to continue the family line, their youngest son secretly joins an erotic dance theatre and falls for an ambitious trans starlet. Their impossible love story slowly illuminates the entire Rana family’s desire for a sexual rebellion.
