Sunday Cinema - Village Rockstars

April 14 4:30 to 6:00 pm

In a small village in northeast India, 10-year-old Dhunu dreams of having her own rock band. Her vibrant spirit, imagination and self-assurance stand out in a world where girls are expected to be timid and submissive. With her gang of boys and the support of her widowed mother, Dhunu faces the struggles of her daily life and hopes for the day she can finally play on a real guitar.

"Village Rockstars is confident and sincere, its story unfolding at a languid but controlled pace." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

"While Rima Das intended the film to be a tribute to her village, her sensitivity and warmth guarantees that it also captures the innocence of childhood - and the doting bond between mothers and daughters." - Poulomi Das, Arré
