Diana (BOF8)

Drama | 11mins | English | 2009



“On the day after the Princess of Wales’ death Mohit, an Indian pre-op transexual, goes on an emotional journey set against the backdrop of a day that shocked a nation.”


Written & Directed by: Aleem Khan
Starring: Neeraj Singh


Diana is an emotional story which uses the death of Princess Diana to reflect upon the Diana’s life and inner-turmoil with being trans. It beautifully mixes and cuts between Indian music and news reports. The link between the two is heightened when alongside the death, storms in India are reported. This sees Diana pushed to the edge as she reflects upon her life. Ultimately she concludes that a life of prostitution is better than living life as a man – powerful.
