A Mermaid Called Aida

Director: Riyad Vinci Wadia

India 1996
color, 52 min.

This film is a fascinating documentary that reveals the enigmatic real life story of India’s most famous transsexual Aida Banaji.
Director Riyad Vinci Wadia reveals the bittersweet struggle of a woman trapped inside a man’s body to explore the politics of gender; and in doing so boldly challenges perceptions of race, culture and social morality. Aida takes the audience on a voyage of discovery into her complex inner life as a transsexual.
