The film by the Indian woman director Alankrita Shrivastava entitled Lipstick Under My Burkha (2017) tells the story of an 18-year-old girl who tries to rebel against the misogynist and patriarchal context in which she lives in order to make a life for herself. This irreverent film is caught up in the trammels of the Central Board of Film Certification, the local authority in charge of censorship, which has blocked its release for months. The interesting thing, however, are the reasons: apart from the reprimand for including too many sex scenes and for certain audios defined as pornographic, the core criticism lies in the fact that the film is “too excessively addressed to women”. Anyone guilty of this most serious crime certainly can’t be allowed to get of lightly.
