Southlake Cinemania: A TIFF Film Circuit presents VILLAGE ROCKSTARS
: Dhunu wants a rock band. It's an admirable goal for a young girl, but out of reach when you live in a remote village in northeast India. The same boys who want to join Dhunu in rock-star glory tease and mistreat her because she's a girl. And though Dhunuâs widowed mother is a strong figure in her life, she seems to have little patience for her daughter's extravagant dreams of electric guitars. Yet a guitar is exactly what drives Dhunu's ambition. At 10 years old, she is alive with a passion for music and a dazzling confidence in her own convictions. Rima Das's second feature paints an inspiring portrait of a young girl finding her place in a world made for boys and men.
Directed by Rima Das. 2019/87 minutes/India. In Assamese with English subtitles.
