‘Chutney’ pops Out Loud on Sundance

Pic to showcase lesbian and gay-themed film series

Indian filmmaker Nisha Ganatra’s debut film “Chutney Popcorn” will be the centerpiece presentation of Out Loud, the Sundance Channel’s monthlong lesbian and gay-themed film series airing throughout the month of June.

Co-scripted by Ganatra with Susan Carnival and starring Ganatra and Jillian Hennessy (“Autumn in New York”), comedy centers on a young photographer whose creative vocation and sexual orientation have put her on the hot seat with her Indian-expatriate family. Tensions multiply when she agrees to carry her infertile sister’s baby for her.

Among other pics to air as part of the series are David Moreton’s “Edge of Seventeen” and Chinese helmer Zhang Yuan’s “East Palace West Palace” in its television premiere.
