Satyavati – Description
Whilst writing the script of “Satyavati” I, (Deepthi Tadanki), I had to be precisely careful about the plot of the story, the sensitivity of the subject, and the characters in the story and other minute details concerning the dialogues exchanged and even the expressive interjections used by the characters.
The primal focus of making this film is to let the audience understand that lesbianism is not a disease that needs to be cured; it is as natural as heterosexuality.
Case studies across the globe have chronicled cases of “Corrective Rape” on women who’ve been discovered to be lesbians and as heinous as it may sound – the immediate kith and kin of the girl permit strangers to let the girl get raped, foolishly assuming that that is the only corrective measure for their girl to be cured from Lesbianism and she will start thinking “Normally”
This film has no intention of disrespecting any culture or tradition of any clan or belief, however through this film I am attempting to bring a STOP to such heinous and life-taking practices that are being followed in some places on this earth.
As man has evolved from generation to generation, episodically he has had to witness, to challenge and to win against many phases of survival and ironically battle against the preaching of universally acclaimed symbolic sacred references of “Peace amongst Humanity”
“Satyavati” will stand a story of example of why we need to understand each other on levels of “Humanity” more, than inclining our existence on misconstrued and judgmental rules of some traditional influence or preaching of pre-historic literary references.
Why should youFUND ?
If you are Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender or Bi-sexual it is most important for you to know that you are Human first and if God asks you to find miracles in forgiveness, blessings in loving your enemies and Bliss in spreading Kindness, then it’s “you” who can uplift the value Humanity and eradicate Hatred from the world by supporting this film – “Satyavati”.
If you FUND this project you will give yourself a chance to protect and save lives of some young girls who may not have gone through such heinous practices but may fall victim to, if this awareness is NOT brought out. Through this film you will give a chance to shape the minds of the younger generation to understand the vision of Love and bring a STOP to such inhuman activities like – Corrective Rape.
