SPINSTERHOOD explores the clash between cultures, beliefs, and generations. Sara Chatterjee, a 29-year-old first generation, Indian-American, is terrified of coming out to her parents. Meanwhile, her parents are horrified she’s ‘single’ at 29. Sara navigates coming-out, Indian traditions, and her parent’s obsessive matchmaking.

The Tipping Point

Little things can make a big difference. Watch how these female-driven films – although short – will make you laugh, cry, gasp, or fall out of your chair. Your evening won’t be the same. – Dorothy Xiao
