Gautam & Buddha

Gautam & Buddha (United States, India)

Synopsis:

Best friends Gautam and Buddha are the cross-dressing stars of the New Conquerors, a bawdy, all-male traveling theater in rural India. While Buddha is openly gay, Gautam has a wife and a son back in the village. Set in a milieu far from the court battles that recently decriminalized homosexuality, this documentary finds nuance, tolerance, and complexity in an unexpected corner of the world.
