Matrimonios concertados y relaciones sentimentales interraciales en el cine de mujeres de la diáspora sudasiática

Jorge Diego Sánchez

Resumen

Las películas de Gurinder Chadha y Mira Nair definen diáspora como un espacio de diáspora en el que las mujeres pueden ser representadas agentes de cambio. Este trabajo estudia la manera en la que Chadha y Nair subvierten concepciones orientalistas sobre el Subcontinente sudasiático y las mujeres sudasiáticas presentando personajes femeninos pioneros que luchan contra la desigualdad racial y de género en Reino Unido, Estados Unidos y el Subcontinente Sudasiático desafiando los roles impuestos social y culturalmente respecto a su participación y la representación de los matrimonios concertados y las relaciones sentimentales interraciales. El estudio de la filmografía selecta de Chadha y Nair refleja cómo proponen nuevos modelos postcoloniales que favorecen la creación y acción de personajes femeninos en la diáspora y en el Subcontinente.
