Their love was their shame.

Malcriad (a Konkani term of abuse that roughly translates to 'badly or shamefully behaved' man) is a 20-minute psycho sexual drama set in contemporary Melbourne. 

This sensitive, thought- provoking film explores the complex relationship between two young men from a close knit, conservative, Catholic South Indian community. 

Malcriad  moves beyond simplistic notions of good and evil. It is about learning to live with uncomfortable truths. It follows through on French philosopher George Bataille who argued that to surpass loneliness and ephemerality, we must overcome taboos and engage with the erotic.
