Not under one's own skin
"Anjali" explores the world of LGBTI through the exploration and portrayal of Anjali, a
transgender character. Anjali is a small window through which the world of transgender, their
issues, problems, hopes and fears are explored– a sort of a microcosm of the transgender world.
Anjali is born as a boy, and who later discovers herself as a transgender. The documentary
explores her upbringing in a small village in the hilly district of Nuwakot, a district neighboring
capital city Kathmandu, the discrimination she faced, the struggle she did after coming to
Kathmandu and also about her dreams and hopes about the future.
The film is produced by Middleway Films and is directed by Mohan Rai.
