BIFF: Village Rockstars
Birmingham Indian Film Festival returns, showcasing a new and exciting selection of cutting-edge independent films that are guaranteed to entertain and offer fascinating insights into a billion South Asian lives.
Recipient of multiple international awards, Village Rockstars is an instant crowd-pleaser. A single mother and her 10 year old daughter Dhunu live in a remote flood-prone Assamese village. Dhunu is not a shy and with a vibrant spirit and imagination she dreams of setting up her own rock band. When the local women complain about Dhunu’s un-girlish behaviour, her mother is forced to make a stand.
