The youngest son in a traditional Pakistani family takes a job as a backup dancer in a Bollywood-style burlesque and quickly becomes infatuated with the strong-willed trans woman who runs the show. With stunning honesty that’s achingly bittersweet, "Joyland" tackles gender and sexual fluidity in a repressed patriarchal society with wisps of hopefulness. Sponsored by Canopy Salon. Backstage reception at 6 p.m. June 24 with Q&A after the film.
