The first Pakistani film to be presented in the CSAS South Asian Film Series, Joyland will be screened at the historical Michigan Theater on Wednesday, March 13, 2024. This event is FREE and open to the public.

The Ranas -- a happily patriarchal joint family -- yearn for the birth of a baby boy to continue the family line. Their youngest son secretly joins an erotic dance theatre and falls for an ambitious trans starlet. Their impossible love story slowly illuminates the entire Rana family's desire for sexual rebellion. Presented in Urdu with English subtitles.

Made possible with the generous support of the Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
