Pixelia - BUY THIS DVD!
Kumar, a 30-year-old bachelor, leaves his corporate job in Kochi to pursue his dreams as an artist. He embarks on a new life as an Uber driver while working on an original graphic novel, 'Pixelia'. One day a transgender woman, Mandakini, gets into his cab and changes Kumar's life forever. Kumar and Mandakini spend the whole day together, opening each other's minds. Mandakini shares her past life and desire to adopt a child, while Kumar narrates the story of his graphic novel. A special bond ensues, whereby Kumar realizes his own queer identity. With a stylized blend of documentary and magical realism, PIXELIA speaks to the fragmentation of daily life.
