The expansive labyrinthine city of Calcutta forms the backdrop for Tales of the Night Fairies; it attempts to represent the struggles and aspirations of thousands of sex workers who constitute the Durbar Women’s Collaborative Committee. A collective of men, women and transgendered sexworkers, DMSC demands decriminalization of adult sex work and the right to form a trade union.
