A-20 Basement
Lajpat Nagar III
New Delhi

QueerCampus brings to you another event called "QIEW- The Queer View" to watch, learn, experience, chill, laugh, share and discuss as we unroll some Queer Reels.

It's time for something Naughty and Nice as we're screening,




Shortbus is a 2006 comedy-drama film written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell. The plot revolves around a sexually diverse ensemble of colorful characters trying desperately to connect in New York City. A group of New Yorkers get caught up in their romantic-sexual milieu converge at an underground salon infamous for its blend of art, music, politics, and carnality.


Numerous New York City-dwellers come to the exclusive club Shortbus to work out problems in their sexual relationships. Rob and Sophia are a happily married couple, except for the fact that she has never experienced sexual climax. This irony follows her to work, because she is a couples counselor who frequently has to deal with the sexual issues other couples have. Two of her patients are Jamie and James, a gay couple who have been monogamous for five years and counting. James wants to bring other men in to the relationship, and his own history with depression may hint at an ulterior motive. Ceth (Pronounced like Seth) may be the perfect addition to their family, but Caleb, a voyeur from across the street, may have his own ideas about that. Sophia visits Severin, a dominatrix with secrets of her own to reveal.

Viewers Rating : 7/10

Viewers Review:

- Funny, fantastic. Nearly a masterpiece. Don't miss it.
- For Once, Emotion Trumps Sex.
- Explicitly Wonderful.
- On-screen sexual thrills take a backseat to Shortbus' emotional core.
