The hugely successful Kashish International Queer Festival comes out with its second edition Kashish 2011 — Mumbai International Queer Festival. This 5 day long festival will end on May 29 and boasts of 124 films from 23 countries.
One such film to be showcased is the movie Undertow from Peru, which deals with the story of Miguel. Miguel, a handsome and young fisherman in Cabo Blanco, is married to the beautiful Mariela who is 7-months pregnant with their first child. However, Miguel has a scandalous secret — he is having a
love affair with another man, Santiago, a painter, who has been ostracised by the townsfolk for being agonistic and open about his sexuality.

Along with this, the cast and crew of some of the movies will also be in attendance at the festival. Make sure to reach in advance since the entry
