Sex, Death and the Gods


The devadasi women are Hindus who are married to god in childhood, and sold for sex once they hit puberty. In this fascinating documentary Beeban Kidron goes on an intimate journey into the twilight world of the devadasi and meet the girls of Karnataka, southern India. These young southern Indian girls are forced to live in this ancient tradition despite it having been declared illegal for more than 60 years.

The film investigates the surprising history of this little-understood community, revealing their rich and privileged past as concubines to the princes and priests of India’s ruling class and explores their heritage as dancers and entertainers.
