This 2021 Indian film by filmmaker Jeo Baby will screen as part of Chitra Gopalakrishnan's current solo exhibition, "Augmented Realities" at the Hill Street Country Club. The film illustrates the invisible domestic and emotional labor of women, centering on the story of a new bride. Gopalakrishnan will lead a discussion after the screening, which is a hybrid event. There's extremely limited on-site seating (15 spots) and masks must be worn, but you can also watch along via Zoom.

The upside to grabbing one of those on-site spots is that you'll be able to browse Gopalakrishnan's fantastic exhibition of paintings and AR animation.

Details: Saturday, May 29 from 5-7 p.m. 530 South Coast Highway, Oceanside, or online. Free, but advance registration is required.

"The Great Indian Kitchen" is a 2021 film from Kerala, India, directed by Jeo Baby. This compelling film revolves around the familiar sights and sounds of Indian cuisine, but unlike any yearning for wholesome Indian food, this showcases the invisible labor of women and the drudgery of housework in many Indian homes. Very regional yet extremely universal, this moving film captures the subtle nuances of patriarchy that sneak into relationships and lifestyles by following the life of a young bride as she navigates life in her domestic surroundings. Effortlessly portrayed by the beautiful Nimisha Sajayan, this film is a masterclass in nuanced storytelling about contemporary Indian society.

This event is FREE and was made possible by Mankind Cinemas and The Oceanside Public Library
