Cinema Savannah is showing Joyland, winner of the Cannes Jury Prize and Independent Spirit Award. This Saim Sadiq feature debut is an unforgettable exploration of love, gender, and sexuality, a mysterious and tender drama demonstrating the difficulties of reconciling the “right way to feel love with the right away to feel part of a family” (The Guardian).
Following a long spell of unemployment, Haider, the youngest son of a happy patriarchal family, lands a job at a Bollywood-style burlesque, telling his family he is a theater manager. In actuality, he is a backup dancer and becomes infatuated with a strong-willed trans woman, Biba. Their impossible love story slowly illuminates his entire family's desire for sexual rebellion. In Urdu and English, with English subtitles. 128 minutes.
