MIRANDA KENNEDY

SIDEWAYS ON A SCOOTER: LIFE & LOVE IN INDIA

In the early aughts, Miranda Kennedy, a young reporter living in New York City, relocated to India, where a British great-aunt had served as a missionary and where her own parents had lived during the early years of their marriage. She stayed for half a decade, becoming a foreign correspondent for American Public Media's Marketplace and National Public Radio. Click During her time there, Kennedy is drawn into the lives of several Indian women, including her charismatic friend Geeta--a self-described "modern girl" who attempts to squeeze herself into the traditional role of wife and mother; Radha, a proud Brahmin widow who denies herself simple pleasures in order to live by high-caste Hindu principles; and Parvati, who defiantly chain-smokes and drinks whiskey, yet feels compelled to keep her boyfriend a secret from her family. 

Local photographer KYO MORISHIMA will be highlighting the event with beautiful pictures from India, in which people are riding SIDEWAYS ON A SCOOTER!

2 PM, Sat. April 30
