Kickstarter Campaign For A Short Film “The Cold Call”

In September last year, Gaysi team member AK had reviewed Rahul Mehta’s book of short stories called “Quarantine,” a collection of short stories that chronicle the lives of gay Indian-American men, their disappointments and betrayals and hard earned personal connections they come to cherish. We were very please to find out a few weeks ago that someone had picked up on one of his stories and is looking to convert this into a short film “The Cold Call”.

To know more about this film, you can hear writer/director Sohnia Van Der Puye talk about her project hereThe Cold Call has launched its Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the short film.
