I have to say that I was very impressed. And disturbed, in a good way! To pull that off is an accomplishment, especially wearing so many different hats as a director, screenwriter, and actor.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, August 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indie drama “When the Music Changes” by doctor-turned-actor-turned-filmmaker Lakshmi Devy, revolves around a young Native American woman who is dishonored or raped by men. The original short acts as a societal reminder that it is not the woman but the man who ultimately loses his honor due to this malevolent and vicious act. Executive produced by Emmy Award-winning John Turturro, FiDi Talkies’ internationally award-winning film is now available to stream in the US on iTunes, Google Play and YouTube. In light of Roe V. Wade’s current reversal, for every iTunes rental over the next three months, a portion of the proceeds from the feature will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

The film centers on a beautiful young Native American woman (Lakshmi Devy) who finds happiness through her work as a documentary filmmaker and spending time with friends in her hometown in India. Trapped in an abusive relationship with her lover, albeit more emotionally than physically, she struggles to accept that it is abuse. An unfortunate incident shakes her to the core, causing her to reflect on the relationship and ultimately take a call regarding her self-respect. The message is clear: every 16 minutes, a woman is raped in India.

“When The Music Changes is a stark reminder that patriarchy and rape culture are two sides of the same coin,” said Lakshmi Devy. “Rape has more to do with power play than sex. The film challenges the foundation of the paradigm that shockingly believes that a woman’s honor can be destroyed when she is raped or violated.

The film stars Lakshmi Devy, Adith Arun, Naveen George Thomas, Shreya Navile and Vignesh Shivasubramaniam. The film was written and directed by Lakshmi Devy and is produced by John Turturro.

“I must say that I was very impressed. And disturbed, in a good way! said executive producer John Turturro. “To pull this off is an accomplishment, especially wearing so many different hats as a director, writer and actor. It’s a worthy and important subject that takes all shapes and forms in so many different cultures. I thought the visuals were strong and that the story also told.

“When the Music Changes” is based on real incidents and the unprecedented violence and atrocities faced by women in the contemporary world. The film spreads a universal message of women’s liberation that must be announced in all nations, including developing countries where evils like marital rape are still not considered by law. It has already created a following in India and marks its worldwide debut in the United States.

Devy recently won the Gold Remy Award for Best Director at the 54th Worldfest Houston International Film Festival for “When The Music Changes.” She joins the ranks of other industry recipients including Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, The Coen Brothers, John Lee Hancock, Brian de Palma, Randal Kleiser, Ridley Scott, Oliver Stone and David Lynch.
