Q’s “Suzanne Takes Me Down” in Slamdance Collective

By NewsDesk • Published on January 23, 2013

suzanneQaushiq Mukherjee a.k.a. Q’s Suzanne Takes Me Down is part of the Slam Collective launched at the ongoing 19th Slamdance Film Festival. The film trails one night in the life of Suzanne, a transgender sex worker, who walks the streets of Kolkata, confessing her dreams.

The Slam Collective features seven Slamdance filmmakers from five countries (United States, Mexico, South Africa, Australia and India) coming together to make I Want To Be An American, Slamdance’s first documentary feature.

“In the spirit of the Surrealist parlor game of chance Exquisite Corpse, each filmmaker makes a documentary short film based on imagery forwarded on by the previous filmmaker in the chain. The composite story forms a global independent filmmaking experience,” states an official press release.

The other films in the Collective are Dale Yudelman’s I Want To Be An American, Maya Newell’s Clown In The Crowd, Dylan Verrechia’s Aidee, Monteith McCollum’s Listen, Peter Baxter’s All About Eve and Daniel J. Harris’ Rosa.

The festival will conclude on 24th January, 2013.
