Indelible Lalita

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Indelible Lalita tells the story of a beautiful woman whose resilient spirit survives her body's transformation by cancer, heart failure, and a dramatic loss of skin pigment. Meditatively flowing between surface and interior, the film follows Lalita as she migrates from Bombay to Paris to Montreal, and becomes completely white along the way. Lalita learns to let go of her body as the sign of her ethnicity and femininity, and ultimately realizes that her body is just a temporary vessel for her spirit.
