The Excluded Ones

I heard that in the entire “Lord of the Rings” film trilogy, no two female characters ever speak to each other.

You never notice these things and then you realise how many of these stories are of men, by men, for men.

Women are excluded. Queer people too. We make so many people invisible.

Karan Johar refuses to see poor people in his most famous films. In seeing what we want to see, we often oppress the unseen.
