Eve’s Shame is a found footage video showcasing the repercussions of the eve teasing epidemic in South Asia and how Bollywood imagery propagates these modes of assault. “Eve teasing” is a euphemism used in Bangladesh and India for public sexual harassment of women by men, where the woman is in some way liable for the behavior of the perpetrator. Eve’s Shame highlights how Bollywood images have been presented to South Asian cultures, and it attempts to turn expressions of Bollywood culture against itself through revealing scenes.
